Title: Severe Storms StudyJam

Severe storms can really wreak some havoc on the Earth. Thunderstorms bring lightning and strong winds, but tornadoes, hurricanes, and blizzards can cause even greater destruction.

The classroom resource provides a slide show that will describe types of severe weather that can occur and their possible impacts on Earth. There is also a short test that can be used to assess students' understanding.
