The smallest piece of an element that retains all original properties and is still referred to by the elements name is an atom. Beyond an atom everything is just made up of protons, neutrons, and electrons. The sub atomic particles can be further broken down, however it is not typically necessary for anything but a very advanced chemistry course.

An element is a class of the same atom. An atom is made up of electrons, protons, and neutrons. Electron, out of the three, is known to be the smallest in size. However, the UNIT, that can be used to measure an atom is its AMU, Atomic Mass Unit. Proton and Neutrons each have roughly an AMU of 1.
