                  - Use the' Title-Introduction-Information-Conclusion (TIIC)

Why People Need to Drink Water

Today I am going to explain why people need to drink water and to stay hydrated throughout the days.

1st element
People need to drink water so that they can be hydrated. If you are not hydrated and not drinking water that much. It will lead you to headaches. Humans also need to drink water because it is good for your health and it will help you survive.

2nd element
We also need to drink so that we don’t have high blood pressure, it is also good for your skin to do it’s job of regulating your body temperature through sweating. If you drink more water. It will get out waste quicker.  

3rd element
Don’t drink too much water before you will have fatal diseases and it will cause the level of salt, or sodium in your blood to drop low. It is a condition called hyponatremia. That is also called water intoxication.

This is the end of my writing and I hope you've got more ideas of why water is good for you and why drinking too much water is not good for you.   

This is my writing template that I have finished from week 3. I have to write an explanation about why people need to drink water.
