I shared the results of Emily's science project here
Jared with his finished Science Fair poster ("Is there really iron in your cereal?")
Jared tested four cereals (Cheerios, Corn Flakes, Life, and Apple Jacks), but was only able to find iron in two of them (Life and Apple Jacks). We used two different magnets, both quite strong (hard to remove from the fridge!). Both magnets found iron in Life and Apple Jacks, but NEITHER magnet found iron in Cheerios or Corn Flakes. It's possible we still didn't have a strong enough magnet, but Cheerios and Corn Flakes were both supposed to have MORE iron in them than the other two, so it leaves me wondering...

I may never be able to look at Apple Jacks again without the image of the bag full of what looked like vomit. *gag*
Connor, who adamently did NOT want to do the Science Fair, was feeling very sorry for himself this morning and wishing he'd opted to do it. Live and learn!
