Tornadoes

November 21, 2011

Recently, I saw this idea from linesdotsanddoodles.blogspot.com.  When second grade teachers mentioned they were learning about tornadoes, I knew we had the perfect lesson.  Students observed and analyzed the painting Tornado Over Kansas by John Steuart Curry.  His painting captured the fear and anxiety of a family trying to escape a tornado.  Kids had fun creating this picture, cutting through lots of paper and making objects fly through the air.
