2 activities to be used at the beginning of "Night of the Twisters"
1. Tornado Art Activity - In this activity each student needs 1 pipe cleaner and sheet of Manila paper. Students turn a tornado into SOMETHING else. Students must also focus on Main Idea and Details of their master piece.
2. Narrative Writing - After reading Chapter 1, students compose a personal narrative essay describing their Red or Black Letter Day.
P.S. Tornado Art Activity may also be completed at the END of the novel. I've done it both ways in my classroom. It works well either way:)
