What Does It Teach?

Science Fair Connection:

A good science fair experiment must include a variable, or something that changes in the experiment. If you are only trying to find iron in one type of cereal, you don't have a variable. You are merely demonstrating that the cereal contains iron.

  • Use different cereals and follow the same procedure as above to see which cereal contains the most iron.
  • Does the type of liquid you use affect how much iron you find?

Be sure to change only one thing in your tests so that you standardize the conditions as much as possible and isolate the variable, which is the brand of cereal or type of liquid. Document your results and get ready to share your discoveries at the science fair.
