The water in our body : Preshool children`s thoughts of water inside us (English)
Abstract [en]


This study deals with preschool children's ideas about water in our body. Ten children with the age of four to five were interviewed individually, the interviews were qualitative. The children were also asked to draw their answers and answer questions about a picture that represented the excretory system. The results of my study show that children did not have any knowledge about the water being vital for us. Preschool children had no knowledge of why it is important to drink water. The water path through the body explained the majority of the children as water going around the entire body and then leaving it as urine. The reason for my results may be the children's young age and that they have not been trained in the subject.
