Abstract [en]

The aim of the study was to investigate pre-school children's thoughts of the water in the human body. Data was collected by qualitative interviews. The interviews have been supplemented by letting children draw the way of the water on human silhouettes. The result of the study shows that most children imagine that the water flows in the body in a direct line, from the mouth to the bladder. The most common notion of why we should drink water is closely linked to health. There were thoughts that humans should drink water to prevent disease, while some children had a thought that water is necessary in disease. When the children were to explain where the location of the water is in the body, there was a broader discussion as there were different thoughts about this. Only a few of the children had an idea that water is present inside the entire body. The conclusion of the study shows that children in pre-school age and pupils in grade nine have similar thoughts about the water within us.
