Bottled Tornado

© Contributed by Leanne Guenther

Tornados are a dangerous force of nature but this one is safe.  Make and observe your very own tornado inside a jar.

Your experiment will keep for weeks.  Just shake it up whenever you’re in the mood to see your tornado.

Kaitlyn and dad had lots of fun playing with their tornado once it was done and I caught Darren playing with it in the kitchen weeks after we did it the first time.

What Happened:

Shaking the jar in a circular fashion creates a vortex inside the jar.  That is what a tornado is...a vortex.
