Chemical Reactions: Arrangements of Atoms Science Games
In this series of games, your students will learn about the components of chemical reactions and how they change. The Chemical Reactions: Arrangements of Atoms learning objective — based on NGSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research.
Scroll down for a preview of this learning objective’s games and the concepts they drive home.
During a chemical reaction, bonds are broken, atoms are rearranged, and new bonds are formed. Substances can be broken apart, joined together, or some combination of the two.
The substances entering the reaction are called reactants, and the resulting substances, with new chemical formulas, are called products.
Human-made materials, or synthetics, are created by transforming natural resources in chemical reactions. These include some foods, medicines, fabrics, fuels, cleaning products, and much more.
Many chemicals are harmful to humans, and some reactions can be dangerous. It is important to take certain safety precautions in laboratories. Scientists wear protective gear, such as goggles, gloves, and lab coats, and they always use equipment properly to ensure their safety.
