Thundercake by Patricia Polacco

Make thunder using brown paper bags. Explain that the force of the bag popping and the air moving away in waves and the sound it creates is similar to how thunder is produced. When lightening strikes, the energy heats the air that it passes through. This warm air expands and produces waves of air resulting in the sound we know as thunder.
