Educator Resources for Sortify: Elements of the Periodic Table

Sortify is an original BrainPOP game in which students categorize and sort information from BrainPOP movies into bins representing key concepts. With the Elements of the Periodic Table data set, students can practice sorting element tiles into bin categories such as atomic number, metals, flammable, and physical state. Students earn more points when sorting tiles into bins labeled with more complex concepts, oxidizing agent and number of valence electrons. Students may also earn bonus points for accurately sorting all tiles into only four bins. Scores for Sortify will vary based on the combination and difficulty of the selected bins. Accruing the highest possible score indicates that a student has understood the topic enough to strategically group and categorize key concepts and ideas.
