Some heavy storms moved through the area today resulting in a tornado watch. The weather over the past few days has been pretty topsy turvy (see October 24th). I realize that I just posted some weather related sites on Friday, but today’s storm kept me thinking about how to bring “extreme weather” into the classroom:
NOAA presents an activity to “introduce you to the history of tornado forecasting, tornado formation and tornado safety.”
Scholastic provides instructions on how to make weather forecasting tools from scratch, as well as information about how tornadoes are formed.
The University Corporation for Atmospheric Research presents WebWeather for Kids with instructions on how to make your own thunderstorm, lighting and a tornado.
