This is the male Madagascar Hissing Roach.

I have them in my classroom because I think they teach many things:

1. Just because it is not cute and cuddly, you still need to be respectful of all living creatures.

2. Just because your knee jerk reaction is to run away, you can learn to overcome unfounded fears - be brave!

3. By mid year all my students will pet them, and most will hold them, showing them that they can do something most adults will not :)

I teach 3 year olds to five year olds and I want to instill in them curiosity and a love of learning and I believe this comes through open mindedness. Insects play such a huge role in our world wide environment, we need to be respectful of them and can learn so much from their industrious and sustainable ways of living.

Now I'll get off my soap box ! :)

P.S. Madagascar roaches, unlike German roaches, can not live in Wisconsin outside of captivity and therefore can infest your home.

That is a great thing you are teaching! :D

I was afraid he might be getting ready to bite you!

It is so cool you are teaching them they can do something a WHOLE lot of adults would be afraid of doing. Really empowers them. :D
