Did anyone put ‘water’ on the list of things you need to survive?

How many glasses of water a day do we need to stay healthy?  Conduct a survey in your school to find out how many glasses of water children drink each day.  Create a graph to show your findings and display it in the classroom. 

  • What percentage of children in your survey drink enough water to stay healthy? 
  • What percentage of the survey do not drink enough water? 
  • Why do you think some people don’t drink enough water?
