Symmetry is when two parts of a whole are exactly identical. Something is symmetrical if you can draw a line down it and each side looks the same. This is called the Line of Symmetry
This activity will allow pupils to experience Symmetry- if you have a mirror hold it in the middle of the picture so they can see the reflection is the same as what they have made.
