Students will learn about how tornadoes are classified and how they form. Attached is a file which shows a tornado simulator that was built and used in the classroom for maximum inquiry. Although this model is large, smaller models can be built and utilized effectively. Students will understand the forces that are involved in the creation of severe weather.
