    • How are they formed?
      There is no exact way to know how tornadoes are formed.
      USUALLY they occur when:
      cool dry air from the north AND warm moist air from the south mix together.

    • HOW BIG?
      Tornadoes are measured by the Fujita scale and rated F0-F5.
      • F0 is the smallest tornado
      • F5 is the largest tornado
      Fujita Scale
      The winds are stronger and there is more damage when the tornado is bigger!

    • FACT
      “In an average year in the United States, 800 tornadoes are reported nationwide…”
      -National Geographic
    • So, how are tornadoes detected?
      Forecasters gather data from:
      Satellite imagery
      Radar
      Weather stations
      Weather balloons
      Lightning detection networks

    • SAFETY
      • Listen to the radio or watch television for weather updates.
      • If you see people who are injured:
      • Do not move them unless they are in immediate danger!
      • Call for help right away!
      • After a tornado:
      • Watch for broken glass and power lines that are downed!
      TIPS
      http://www.fema.gov/kids/knw_tor.htm
    • Tornado watch
      A tornado watch means a tornado is possible with the current weather.
      What should you do?
    • Tornado warning
      A tornado warning means that a tornado has been spotted and touched the ground.
      What should you do?
    • Most tornadoes are weak…
      BUT, they all can become dangerous very fast.
      Knowing about tornadoes and how to stay safe will help protect others and YOU!
    • First, each group is going to make a tornado in a bottle.
      Now, you will draw your own tornado.
      Then, write a paragraph about what you have learned about tornadoes and how you would feel if you were near the tornado you have drawn.
      Finally, do you think the tornado in the bottle looks like the photos and videos we have seen?
