Interactive video lesson plan for: Watch: Cockroaches Survive Squeezing, Smashing, and More | National Geographic

Activity overview:

Have you ever wondered why cockroaches are so hard to get rid of? Well, now scientists have put them before a series of obstacles to find out how tough they really are—and the results are creepier than you imagined. Whether squeezing through tiny crevices, running in tight spaces, or taking crushing blows, cockroaches use their flexible exoskeletons to survive your foot stomps and quickly make their way through the cracks and crevices of your home.
