Below is the conversation Mr. Figinblossom's students had after they encountered the armadillo. Read it, then add your contribution to the conversation in your TRAVEL LOG.

Teresa: Guts!

Dalia: Heart!

Otis: Mind!

Charlie: Stomach! Oh, um, I'm getting kinda hungry, guys. Do you think there are any fruits and nuts around?

Tina: Including classmates? I think Rat-a-tat-tat might qualify for both.

Catrina: Oh stuff it, Crackerjack! This place is driving me nuts, I'll tell you that much. Everywhere I look I see ants and spiders and caterpillars and beetles and crickets; I don't need you bugging me, too, OK?

Tina: What would a rain forest trip be without bugs?

Catrina: Pleasant, maybe?

Otis: Not for armadillos since bugs are a major part of their diet.

Wally: Speaking of which, didn't any of you hear the words of the armadillo's song? We've got to focus on the challenge in front of us or we won't get anywhere. C'mon, let's get it together.

Dalia: That's right, the harpy eagle awaits!

Jose: !Ya vamos, entonces! Onward troops!
