A TYPE OF SEVERE WEATHER AND CREATE A PROJECT ABOUT IT. LASHAWN DOESN’T KNOW
WHAT TO DO AND HIS MOTHER SUGGESTED HE MAKE A LIST OF THE TYPES OF SEVERE
WEATHER AND PICK THE ONE THAT IS THE MOST INTERESTING TO HIM. WHAT TYPES OF SEVERE
WEATHER DO YOU THINK LASHAWN INCLUDED ON HIS LIST?
SEVERE WEATHER TYPES
