Water in Your Body

This Water in Your Body lesson plan also includes:

Do you know how much water you have had in the last 24 hours? Do you know how much your body needs? In this hands-on activity, your class members will estimate how much water our bodies lose each day by filling and emptying one-liter containers of water. Young learners will then explore by what processes water is eliminated from the body, ways to replace this water, and how much water healthy humans need overall.
