2. From here students could learn how tornadoes develop. There are simulations they can do to produce a funnel cloud. By doing this they can see how changes in temperature and pressure that accompany these tornadoes can cause the funnel cloud to form.
3. Another idea is for students to research tornado strikes that have happened in there area. Some of these might have been strong and caused some damage. Others like the one in Xenia, Ohio in the 1970s completely devastated a community. It might be interesting to see how tornadoes affect their immediate area and what warning systems and preventative measures are in place.
4. This clip can be shown as part of an assessment on tornadoes. Students can watch the clip and then write about what meteorological conditions must be present for the F4 and F5 tornadoes and what damage they might expect if it came through the area.
