Last week had to practice our school wide tornado drill before school even started.....right during our morning transition time. Good thing we were prepared and had practiced several times. The kids knew right what to do and where to go. Our principal thought we needed to practice during one of our more "crazy" times of the day. Really?!?!?!? (He actually had a real tornado warning occur during this time of the day at his previous school.) Okay.......good idea.......we can not tell the tornado to wait until we get the kids backpacks and stuff put away. lol :)
After talking about how a tornado forms, what it does, what it looks like, what happens during a tornado, and what we should do during a tornado warning, of course we had to go outside and be a tornado!
When we were finished whirling and swirling around, we picked up 10 things for our tornado art project. We finger painted black tornados and glued on the items we picked up from out side. Up in the tornado they went!!
