Closing the loop!

We used loops of string to investigate quadrilaterals. If we held the string in only four places, we could make a four-sided shape.

We were set a challenge to find quadrilaterals with only one line of reflective symmetry.

We found three types of shape that fit the challenge: a kite, an arrowhead and a trapezium.

But which is which?
