Grade two spent a week trapped in a tornado!!
As a tornado travels through the air, it is accompanied by strong winds that pick up objects along the way. These objects become part of the tornado's spinning funnel, traveling at dangerously high speeds in a clock wise direction.
Using soft drink bottles, water, tape, and confetti, the students created tornado models at home with their families. The next day in class, the students were excited to show off their tornado creations. We continued to study the tornado's movements together.
