Science Vortexes

Students create and investigate vortexes to learn about tornadoes. In this tornado lesson, students make a vortex in a bottle and examine how the swirling motion impacts how the water pours out the bottle. Then, students make a vortex with water in two bottles and examine how the water and objects in the bottle move.
