knows the difference between an element, a molecule, and a compound.

SC.A.2.4.3 Add Website - Add Activity

knows that a number of elements have heavier, unstable nuclei that decay, spontaneously giving off smaller particles and waves that result in a small loss of mass and release a large amount of energy.

knows that nuclear energy is released when small, light atoms are fused into heavier ones.

SC.A.2.4.5 Add Website - Add Activity

knows that elements are arranged into groups and families based on similarities in electron structure and that their physical and chemical properties can be predicted.
