The day my students have been waiting for since the first day of school.....cockroach lab. Today we continued our discussion about insects by taking a further look at Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches.
Students took a closer look at these little critters by analyzing characteristics of the roaches. Students were asked to pay particular attention to eating habits, walking manner, use of antennas, reaction to stimuli, gender of their roach, and overall structure of this insect. Today was more of an exploration day to become accustom to the insect's behavior, below are a few highlights from today's lessons.
