Weather: Hurricanes vs. Tornadoes. Paired nonfiction reading with a Venn Diagram to compare tornadoes and hurricanes. Students read about hurricanes and tornadoes, then compare and contrast the characteristics of hurricanes and tornadoes on this basic Venn diagram activity sheet. Includes comprehension questions and answer keys, a vocabulary glossary, a T chart for additional research, links to websites with additional information, and a comparison contrast writing paper. Add to your weather unit and have students research facts about these extreme weather storms. A helpful addition to a Forces of Nature ore natural hazards unit. Also a good supplemental resource to use when reading books that have hurricanes or tornadoes in them, such as The Cay by Theodore Taylor or Tornado Alert by Franklyn M. Branley.
