Kenedy B, Bob B, Gretta S, Taryn W

Bob B., Kennedy B., Gretta S., Taryn W. We were investigating the Madagascar Hissing Cockroach & wondered, since they live on an island near the equator, if they prefer cold water or warm water to drink?


Stay Afloat, Don't End Up at the Bottom of the Moat! Male or Female: Who Floats Longer?

Livia B, Justice J, Kylee P, Jacob S, Jordyn J, Jacob T

We were curious if the Madagascar Hissing Cockroach could swim. During our research, we found no evidence that they can swim or not. Since they live only on the Island of Madagascar, we were wondering if they have ever left. We put the Hissers in water, & found out they can float. So, our experiment is: who can float longer a male or female Hisser?
