Title: Is My State at Risk for a Tornado?
Description: This is a third-grade math lesson on the topic of tornadoes and natural disasters. Students will enter data from an internet search on the number of tornadoes occurring in each state into a spreadsheet. Students will analyze and determine which states are the most active in tornado occurrences and create bar graphs and a scaled picture graph from the data collected.  This unit was created as part of the ALEX Interdisciplinary Resource Development Summit.
