Below is the conversation Mr. Figinblossom's students had when they first landed in the rain forest after the rain storm. Read it, then add your contribution to the conversation in your TRAVEL LOG.

Dalia: Wow, this place is awesome! And this tree is HUGE with a capital H! Its buttresses are like castle walls - and it feels like we're in the dungeon.

Tina: And, look, this kapok tree isn't like the trees we have at home: there aren't any branches until almost the top - which might give us a little bit of a problem when it comes to climbing.

Otis: Problems are meant to be solved...., but I've never come across one quite this humungous!

Catrina: Oh, this is great - just great! Here we are - stuck in the middle of an unknown rain forest, with all kinds of dangerous wild animals lurking about - no food, no water, no machetes. And it's so terribly hot and sticky here! Wait till my mother hears about this one.

Tina: If she ever hears about this one.
