'T' is for Tornado

T is for Tornado

Toto’s daily science class
Has lots of things to do—
Activities with test tubes,
Experiments with goo.

Toto also reads about
The sun and clouds and rain.
He knows about tornadoes
That spin your weather vane.

Twisters twirl and spin and turn.
They lift things off the ground.
Now make your own tornado—
You won’t get tossed around!

Why does Toto's swirling water look like a tornado?

Under certain conditions, liquid like water and the gases in air can act in similar ways. Wind swirling in a tornado and water swirling down a drain both create a shape called a vortex.
