Water Weighs how much?

This first week back we have been working on understanding how important water is to living organisms.

Today we looked at this in more detail. We weighed fresh fruit and dried fruit to see what the difference was. We found that all of the dried fruits weighed less than the fresh fruits. We concluded that this has to do with the amount of water taken out of the fruit when it is dried.

How much water do you think the human body needs to survive?

Here’s what we learned today!

Hope you 6th graders had fun learning about that this week!
