ASK: Night of the Twisters

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!
