Pure Substances Science Games

In this series of games, your students will learn the properties of pure substances and what distinguishes them from other substances. The Pure Substances 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

Substances made up of a single type of atom or molecule are called pure substances. They differ from mixtures, which are a combination of multiple types of atoms or molecules that are not chemically combined.

Some pure substances occur naturally, such as water, oxygen, and sugar. Others, like nylon, are synthetic.

Pure substances have distinct chemical and physical properties that are the same for every sample of the substance. These include density, color, odor, solubility, state of matter at room temperature, and more.

We can observe and measure these properties with a variety of scientific tools, like thermometers, scales, burners, magnets, graduated cylinders, other chemicals, and many more.

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

  • Substance Factory
  • Pure Fun
