# Reflective symmetry in 2D shapes # Reflective symmetry in 2D shapes

Students learn how to describe reflective symmetry in 2D shapes using mirror lines.

Learning progresses from finding the lines of symmetry in simple polygons to reflecting shapes in diagonal mirror lines.

##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to identify lines of symmetry in 2D shapes.
• Most students should be able to describe and sketch polygons that are reflectively symmetric.
• Some students should be able to describe and sketch 2D shapes that are reflectively symmetric.
