Title: Extracting Iron from Cereal
Description: Several breakfast cereals contain iron as a mineral supplement. The iron is in the form of iron powder, and can be extracted from a suspension of crushed cereal in water using a magnet. Iron reacts with acid in the stomach and is eventually absorbed through the small intestine. If all the iron from the body were extracted, there would be enough for two small nails. Iron is essential for the production of hemoglobin. This is a College- and Career-Ready Standards showcase lesson plan.
