Class Experience

Students will learn how tornadoes are formed and how they are very dangerous.
As a K-2 teacher of 8 years, I have always loved bringing science experiments into my classroom! My husband is a former science museum employee and has showed me many awesome experiments and activities over the years that always "wow" my students!
- 1 plastic jar or mason jar with a lid and filled with water but not all the way to the top leaving about 1/4 unfilled. I recommend an empty peanut butter jar cleaned out if possible! A mason jar works great too but could be a little difficult for some learners to shake or could break if falling on the floor. This is up to you what you prefer to use. Part one: making the funnel - dish soap (everyones container may be slightly different in size, I will tell each student how much soap to add in class) - teaspoon of vinegar Part two: adding dark rain clouds and debris - blue food coloring - just a little glitter
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
25 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
