What grade are you in, Jessica, so we can answer appropriately?
Without that info, all I can say is: seeing as how U.S. pennies can't rust because there is no iron in them, what is the normal color of the pennies you are working with?

Soak the penny in some Taco Bell hot sauce, really, it works! Anyone try this, makes 'em look new.David Canard

Soak the pennies in lemon juice. My sister did it for a science project... I am pretty sure that's how she did it.Sarah H. [last name deleted for privacy by Editor]
