What is the “Class 5 Maths Chapter 5 Worksheet”?
This worksheet will be discussing the symmetry. This worksheet will become a guide on what symmetry is.
What is Symmetry?
A shape or an object has symmetry if it can be divided into two identical pieces. In a symmetrical shape, one-half is the mirror image of the other half. The imaginary axis or line along which the figure can be folded to obtain the symmetrical halves is called the line of symmetry.
How will the “Class 5 Maths Chapter 5 Worksheet” help you?
This worksheet will help you in enhancing your skills on how to determine a shape that has a symmetrical half.

Class 5 Maths Chapter 5 Worksheet
Mirror of a figure.
This property is only applicable to a certain figure which has identical sides of a figure. For example, see the figure below.
If we cut through the middle, we will have 2 symmetrical sides. It will look like this,
Then, we will have two different sides which are exactly the same. We color them differently to distinguish.
Observe that one object could be a mirror to one of its sides and vice versa.
Activity 1. Complete the Drawing
Below are half of a whole shape or figure, complete the drawing considering that the given half is similar to the missing side.
Activity 2. Lines of Symmetry
Draw a broken line as a line of symmetry in the figures shown.
Activity 3. Create your own.
Create a figure that would still look the same after ½ turn.
