We have officially wrapped up our unit on magnetism in Science. Recently, we’ve been reviewing our learning, and we also examined close up how electromagnets in speakers work. We conducted some very cutting-edge consumer testing when we examined whether or not there was iron in iron-fortified Cheerios. The students learned how iron is an important element of our diets to keep our blood healthy, and after much crushing, dissolving, and fishing around with magnets, we discovered that you can rest easy: there is indeed iron contained in iron-fortified cereal. Lunchtime in 2B now involves careful examination of the iron contents of various foods!
