My 4 year old is very interested in tornados all of the sudden.  We live in California and don't have them but he gets interested in strange things!  So what are some lessons/ideas to teach about tornados?  We've watched videos of them on youtube and the power of them just facinates him.

So far I thought this would be a great chance to make a disaster kit for our house.  We don't have one!

When I was in 4th grade we took two 2-liter soda bottles, filled one with water, put the empty soda bottle on top and I think used tape and rubber bands to hold it on there and then would shake it up and then turn it over to get a tornado.

http://www.currclick.com/ is another place I find great resources to expand on our studies.  If you are near a science center you might call & see if they have tornado-related activities; you could make your own tornado in a bottle (I think I found this project idea on steve spangler science website) or you could buy one at a toy or novelty store.
