Chapter 7, Lesson 2: What are tornados?

Start by talking to a neighbor.  What do you know about thunderstorms and tornados?  Jot that down in your journal.

Now go to the text and define the vocabulary words.  Next look at the checkpoint questions at the bottom of each page and answer them in your journal.  

1.  Name three ways that make tornados different from hurricanes.
2.  How do doppler radars help scientists look at thunderstorms?
3.  Where are the safest places to be in a house during a tornado?

If you've already done this then you're ready for the quiz!
