Water in Life
One gallon of water weighs 8.34 pounds!
The human body is almost 70 percent water. Every part of our body uses water.
Each day, we should drink at least eight glasses of water.
Tomatoes are 90 percent water, potatoes are 80 percent water, and chickens are 75 percent water.
If there was no water on Earth, there would be no plants, animals or humans! All living things need water to live.
