Experiment: Typhoon

Our Interesting Lessons

Experiment: Typhoon

P.5 students had the opportunity to learn how typhoons are created in a safe environment, using a bottle of water, an empty bottle and some sticky tape. In this simple experiment, every student had the opportunity to spin the bottles to create a typhoon in the water inside. The students really enjoyed watching the science of nature at work and learning how it affects our weather.
