Today I'm bridging three sessions of ASK: Night of the Twisters. Students are interviewing Mr. Ostuno, a NOAA meteorologist. This program is coordinated and funded by TWICE. Students read the book and followed the ASK process to prepare questions for the specialist. Here is a sampling of their questions:
- What are some signs of a tornado starting?
- How come certain kinds of weather happen in certain states?
- What is the diameter of a regular tornado?
- How can scientists know that there were 7 tornados in one day?
- How do you decide if you should evacuate when a tornado is coming?
- What is the best way to be safe during a tornado?
- Would you want to get close to a tornado?
- What is the difference between a tornado and a twister?
This specialist had nice concise answers, which allowed for many students to ask their questions during the program. We'll definitely be doing this program again!
