Molecules and Compounds Science Games

In this series of games, your students will learn about different molecular structures and combinations. The Molecules and Compounds 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.

Concepts Covered

Molecules consist of multiple atoms chemically bonded together. They can consist of one type of atom or many. Some molecules are long with repeating units. A molecule that contains more than one type of atom is a compound.

There are only a certain number of elements that exist on Earth, but they can bond in endless combinations to create different compounds. A molecule’s chemical formula communicates the ratio of different atoms in a molecule.

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

  • Molecular Mastery
  • Molecule Split
  • Molecules & Compounds
  • Lab Rat Molecule Maker
  • Compound Combat
  • Atomic Shooter
  • Molecule Builders
  • Stack the Boxes
  • Molecool

A further preview of each game is below.

You can try the games within the learning objective for free on the Legends of Learning site with an account.
