What killed these people?

Talk with your group and make a list of at least 5 things that could have happened.

  • Jennifer Strange was participating in a radio contest titled “Hold Your Wee For A Wii.” Before leaving the station, she drank up to 2 gallons of water.

  • Cassandra Killpack and Rosita

  • Gonzalez each drank up to 3 quarts of

  • water before they died.

  • Andy Warhol’s condition was not

  • adequately monitored and he was

  • overloaded with fluids.

Water is an essential part of living systems (bodies), how can it be deadly?

Discuss this with your group and develop a hypothesis about what happens when your body takes in too much water.

Concepts you will investigate in lab:

  • Hypertonic

  • Hypotonic

  • Isotonic

  • Osmosis

  • Diffusion

  • Endocytosis
