4. 4. Steps of Investigation<br />First we gathered the fruits and vegetables<br />Second we got the trays and paper plates<br />Third we started cutting the fruits and vegetables<br />Fourth we weighed the fruits and vegetables<br />Finally, we put them on the trays and traced them<br />
5. 5. Results And Conclusions<br />After we waited for two days, we weighed them and recorded the new weight. We found that fruits and vegetables store lots of water! If they loose their water, they shrivel up and loose weight. <br />
6. 6. Results And Conclusions (cont)<br />We weighed our food in ounces.<br />
7. 7. Results And Conclusions (cont)<br />The graph on the other page, explained that fruits and vegetables store lots of water. After two days they dried up, and lost weight. Now if we didn’t have water we will loose weight and die as well.<br />

11. 11. Related Topic- Water In Humans<br />Water makes up about 60% of the body’s weight. For the body to function properly, we need to consume about two quarts of water (or liquid) per day. Water needs vary. It depends on the food a person eats, environmental temperature and humidity, a person’s activity level and other factors.<br />Just think, 60% of our body's are water! That's over half!!<br />
