Severe Storms Info plus a Tornado in a Bottle

STORMS can give us a heavy downfall of rain, snow, sleet, or hail. Storms may also have heavy winds plus thunder and lightning.

Here are 2 excellent sources of information for kids that talk about different types of storms: thunderstorms, tornadoes, hurricanes, and blizzards. Click on the links below to view the Slide Show and Video.

~ Scholastic Study Jams Slide Show - Severe Storms

~ Bill Nye on Storms

As a follow-up activity, the kids might like making their own tornado using 2 recycled plastic bottles. Click on the link below to go to my earlier post that gives directions.
