Severe Storms & Emergencies Weather Activities for Kids

This is Week #3 in our Weather Unit using my {free} Weather Unit along with hands on activities!
tornado in a bottle
We made a tornado in a bottle. This was impossible to photograph, but it looked really cool! We filled a bottle 3/4 up with water, added several drops dish detergent, and some glitter (to make the tornado more visible). It was pretty cool and Goofy kept making tornados all day long!

free weather worksheets
The kids learned some weather words and Goofy practiced writing the words (sheet included in {free} Weather Pack)emergency suitcase
We made a cut & paste Disaster Survival Suitcase and talked about why we needed each of these things. I took the kids to our basement and showed them where our kit was – food, clothes, tp, first aid kit, and 1 galloon of water per person per day (3 days worth). Do you have one?
We also had emergency drills so our kids knew what to do in the case of a fire or tornado. We did several scenarios to help them use their critical thinking skills.
We read some good books on clouds and weather (see below for titles).

Make learning about clouds for kids FUN with these engaging cloud activities. As children learn all about clouds for kids they will try the rain cloud experiment, cotton ball cloud activity for kids, grab the cloud printables, and make a cloud in a bottle. Use the cloud in a jar experiment with toddler, preschool, pre-k, kindergarten, first grade, and 2nd grade students. Whether you do all the cloud lesson or just the hugely popular rain experiment - this is sure to be a fun spring activity for kids!  We made a Lego Water Cycle to help kids visualize what we learned. We’ve made other water cycle crafts and my kids all loved them, but turning it into a lego activity for kids may have taken the cake! You've got to try this water cycle model that is fun AND educational too! This is a fun water cycle project for kindergarten, first grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, 4th grade, 5th grade, and 6th graders too.
