Students are always fascinated to study tornadoes. This is a 50 slide PowerPoint that describes what a tornado is and how it is formed. It has many photographs throughout to help illustrate the points. It also discusses how tornadoes are rated with the Enhanced Fujita Scale. In the end, scenarios are given and students make inferences about what rating the tornadoes would be given. Words discussed are: wind shear, updraft, mesocyclone, funnel cloud, tornado alley, and wall cloud. If you are interested, you may also purchase a note taking guide that students fill out while viewing the PowerPoint. It is formatted with fill the blanks on each slide that students can guess before revealing with a click.
