What percentage of water do we have in our organs?

As I was looking up lesson plan ideas for the upcoming school year, I came across this really neat fact sheet about how much water is in our organs. I know this topic can be kind of "out there," especially since I usually don't post stuff like this, but it was just too interesting to pass up. Sixty percent of adult body weight is water. Wow. I knew the number was pretty high, but I started wondering where all of that water was located. Below is a small diagram explaining what percentage of water each vital organ is. I hope you find this as interesting as I did!
