Overview: Studying tornadoes has great interest and practical application for students. Knowing how to ascertain when danger is approaching and how to protect oneself from the danger is very important. More than one thousand tornadoes occur each year. Creating a booklet for the family on the weather before a tornado, the warning signs that keep the public informed, where to go in your home if a tornado is coming, the supplies to have ready in case of a tornado, and what to do when a tornado has passed will give students a sense of security. The booklet will also lead to family planning and discussions of safety in our unsettled world.
