Whirlwind of Information
Arrowhead Elementary School sixth-graders took an up-close look at a natural phenomenon during a recent science project.

Working in small groups, the students studied tornadoes and then used their research to create six-foot-tall paper replicas of the weather event. They listed several important facts on the paper creations, including where Tornado Alley is located, how tornadoes form and what time of year they form most frequently.

The completed projects, which will be on display in the sixth-grade wing until the end of January, were assessed based on the students’ creativity, accuracy, grammatical usage and teamwork.
