1. Elements and their combinations account for all the varied types of matter in the
world. As a basis for understanding this concept:
a. Students know that during chemical reactions the atoms in the reactants rearrange
to form products with different properties.
b. Students know all matter is made of atoms, which may combine to form molecules.

Molecules are actually made from combining two or more atoms. Molecules are able to be broken down into different atoms, but atoms cannot be broken down. This means that atoms are indivisible, cannot be broken down any smaller. Atoms are the smallest measurement of matter in the world! Atoms cannot exist independently.
