From dust devils to “snow-nadoes,” these exciting weather events will keep children learning and happily investigating the world and weather of the seasons.
“Given that I live just south of Tornado Alley, tornadoes are a very real threat to my family and me, and we have experienced more than our share of tornado warnings. While my older children know the basic causes of tornadoes, and all of my children know what to do in the case of a tornado threat, I was thrilled to see that tornadoes had come under the thoughtful eye of Amanda Bennett, because I know that now I will be able to teach all of my children the ins and outs of every aspect of tornadoes in a fun, but still meaningful, way… It really is hard to overstate how complete and all-inclusive this unit study is. Through a comprehensive series of embedded external links and a concise and easily understood lesson plan, Amanda Bennett truly does make it possible to teach your young children everything they might want to know about tornadoes.”

“Sometimes the best cure for fear is information, and Twisting Tornadoes provides plenty of that to satisfy curious kids . . . This unit study covers the science of vortexes and the hands-on experiments to demonstrate a twister in action. It also covers the geography and vocabulary of tornadoes. Most importantly, it provides Scriptures and prayers to alleviate fears and remind children of God’s loving protection . . . My daughter is always happy to work on a lapbook to display the knowledge she’s gained—and to have something to show off to Grandma and Grandpa! We love unit studies and lapbooks at our house, and we definitely look forward to each installment of Download N Go™. We have not been disappointed yet!”

“This is an easy way to learn the crucial information—all the FUN STUFF related to tornados—and certainly I hope you never get to experience one firsthand, but their power is something incredible! Children have such natural curiosity, and while a REAL tornado may evoke fear, if we teach all the information prior to such an event or as a point of knowledge as the seasons change from winter to spring, what greater peace can come as well as being prepared for safety . . . You will find this easy to teach and rich for your child!”
