This week we learnt that breakfast cereals, like cornflakes, have iron as part of their ingredients. First we described the cereal to decide what it was made from (we suggested that it was a mixture of iron and corn) and then we proved that iron was held within the cereal by using strong magnets to move the cornflakes across the water. Next we discussed how to separate the iron from the mixture and Mrs Haywood explained that by combining water and cornflakes in a blender, the individual products will become separated. Once we did this it was clear to see the iron as a separate element as it was attracted towards the magnets which we held on the outside of the glass beaker.
