This past summer we went to see the movie Into the Storm upon my son’s request. He saw the movie’s trailer on TV, and quickly ran to his Daddy to ask to see the movie. I was a bit hesitant, but quickly realized that my baby isn’t such a baby anymore. Although the movie is rated PG-13 we all went to see the movie together. We all enjoyed the movie, and my son wasn’t scared at all!

I researched on-line, and found Scholastic’s tornado experiment, and Kid Spot’s science tornado in a jar experiment. We used the latter experiment, and my son was enthralled! Being the Spanish homeschool mommy that I am, the tornado experiment was done in Spanish. 🙂 He learned how the tornadoes are formed due to a number of factors including a combination of hot and cold air.
