These free symmetry math worksheets are great for building logic and spatial skills.

Learning about symmetry is something even students as young as preschool can begin to accomplish. There are already so many examples of symmetrical design in the creation around us, that students can easily pick up on this idea once you give it a name…Symmetry!

If this is your student’s first introduction to symmetry worksheets, we recommend starting with the smallest of tasks, such as tracing the reflection of a picture over a line of symmetry. We have some fantastic free butterfly symmetry worksheets available to start.

Also, be sure to check out our Pattern Block Symmetry Mats, as they build upon the symmetry skills using shaped blocks to reflect pictures over a line of symmetry.

For students who have already mastered a foundational understanding of symmetry, you can try these free symmetry grids. With these free symmetry pattern pictures, students will not need to draw the line of symmetry. However, they will be reflecting the picture across the line.

The symmetry grid pictures are available in a variety of differnt ability levels. Some include only three differently colored squares. Some include more colors, or even triangles.

We recommend starting with the easiest of the grids first, and working your way up to the harder levels. The triangles can be tricky to reflect and you might need to save those activity pages for when your student is ready.

We included them here more for extra challenge, not so much that preschoolers should be expected to do them. (Print them up for an older sibling, because these are tons of fun and students love these reflection challenges.

### Symmetry & Reflection Worksheet 1

This is a free printable worksheet for students learning about symmetry and reflection. Students must color the squares to show what the patter would look like when reflected. Students then count and report how many colored squares they see.
