Year 8 extract the iron from cornflakes

img_00031Year 8 have started science this term with a look at vitamins and minerals in a healthy diet. We used very strong magnets to pull out actual iron filings from smushed up cornflakes.here are Rebecca and Maltida with their bag of mashed up cornflakes, drawing knife across the surface. Izzy and Bea hold up their bag, and if you look carefully in the bottom picture you can see the tail of iron filings chasing the magnet. Very cool!
