Iron in Cereal

This short film clip shows how to carry out an investigation to prove that a cereal contains Iron. The test can be easily recreated in class and requires a digital microscope. Hands-on and a bit messy, children won’t believe their eyes when they see that there are real iron filings in cereal.

The clip is designed to enrich the subject knowledge of teachers before teaching topics linked to healthy eating.
