Show how our water content is controlled by our kidneys
Water content and ion content is carefully controlled or cells can be damaged by osmosis. This is an important aspect of maintaining constant conditions in our bodies (homeostasis). Our model shows the structure of the kidney and the kidney tubule (nephron) and how the hormone ADH controls water content.

After making their models, your class will look at kidney and kidney tubule structure. They then look at how kidney tubules carry out ultrafiltration and selective reabsorption of the wanted substances.
The model covers: kidney structure, kidney tubule structure, ultrafiltration, selective reabsorption and the role of ADH.
