The purpose of this activity is to have participants understand the many ways that water is needed by our bodies. Using magnetic puzzles of different body systems, children work together to brainstorm how the different body systems require water to keep us functioning, growing and healthy. With the use of visual aids, participants come to understand how much water the body needs, the importance of water and daily hydration and where this water can be obtained from: drinking water and the food we eat. Further discussion will help children understand that clean water is essential for them as well as other living plants and animals, emphasizing that we are all connected.
- Our body needs water to grow and stay healthy
