ELEMENT COMPOUND TALK by RhondaBodiford on 11-06-2013
I was really confused today in science class today on your lesson about compounds. I thought compounds were two words put together to form a new word out of those two words. You know...paper and clip to make paperclip.
Well, you sort of got it. Compounds like your learning about in science class are when at least 2 different elements combine together to make a new substance.
What is an element?
You know we've been studying the periodic table. The elements listed on this table are each made up of different kinds of atoms.
What is an atom?
An atom is the smallest building block of all things. Do you remember my lesson on protons, neutromns and electrons?
