Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches

Yes, we have Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches as pets, doesn't everyone? Their names are Mr. Hiss and Mrs. Hisser.

We have finished 4 days of school and it seems to be going well. This evening Elijah completed his lapbook on his cockroaches.

Here is a picture of the lapbook open.

You can see the different booklets and flaps open with information on the inside.

There is a close up of Elijah holding his pets.

This is a picture of Mrs. Hisser going through a Lego maze that Elijah built. He used the stop watch on his phone to time them making their way through the maze.
On day one it took Mr. Hiss 1 minute and 13 seconds and Mrs. Hisser 1 minute and 6 seconds.
Then on day two it took Mr. Hiss 46 seconds and Mrs. Hisser whipped through the maze in 30 seconds.

This is where Mr. Hiss and Mrs. Hisser live. They mostly stay under that piece of egg carton during the day. At night they come out and climb all over the little cage.

This was a fun lapbook and study. Elijah is so proud of his lapbook, I hope I can do more with his this school year.

You can get this lapbook and many more fun lapbooks from Homeschool Share.
