In this WebQuest, students will discover the causes and effects of tornadoes. They will also learn about how to prepare for these disasters and if where they live could be affected.


  Attention all Storm Trackers! The National Weather Service needs your help to gather information on tornadoes in your area. Tornadoes can be incredibly destructive and dangerous; the more information we have, the better prepared everyone will be.

We need you to gather statistics and data on what causes tornadoes, what effects these tornadoes have, and how to best prepare for these disasters.

We need a Storm Expert, a Storm Analyzer, and an Emergency Planning Coordinator.

Are you ready for the job? Lets go!
