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 a vocabulary glossary, a T chart for additional research, and a comparison contrast writing paper. Add to your weather unit and have students research facts about storms. 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.
