Karla Thayer, Education Specialist at the Putnam Museum, recently visited Eisenhower Elementary’s Stepping Stones program to provide an engaging science enrichment to students. Ms. Thayer brought hissing cockroaches (native to Madagascar) for students to see. Students learned a great deal about these interesting insects, discussing everything from the rainforest habitat of Madagascar to the anatomy of the insect’s head, thorax, and abdomen. It was a fun lesson where students received some after-school learning in science, geography, and even a visual art activity. Enjoy the photos!
