Concepts Covered

Everything in the universe is made up of atoms. Atoms are the smallest units of matter, and the different types of atoms make up different elements. They can exist on their own, or bonded together in molecules.

The subatomic particles that make up atoms are protons, neutrons, and electrons. Elements have unique properties and atomic structures. All atoms of the same element have the same number of protons. The universe of elements and their properties are charted in the periodic table.

In total, there are eight games in this learning objective, including:

  • Escape Is Elementary
  • World of Atoms
  • Tower Puzzle: Atoms and Elements
  • Dr. Jones introducing Atoms and Elements
