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

Jose: OK, troops! Uno, dos, tres, cuatro, cinco, seis, siete. Uno, dos, tres, cuatro, cinco, seis, siete. Follow me, follow me, I will lead you up the tree...

Dalia: Look! We've shrunk to the size of leafcutter ants and we're marching right up the tree with them. Remember, Mr. F. told us some people believe that leafcutters are magical since they can go anywhere. I guess it's true.

Catrina: Oh, this is great - just great! I've seen a lot of wacky science experiments go haywire in Mr. F.'s class, but ant-sized students takes the cake. How's he going to explain this one to our parents?! '...Uh, hello. Mrs. Kanofski, today at school we shrunk your kid...' My mother would go through the roof!

Tina: Why wouldn't she just go through the door?

Otis: Did you know that leafcutters don't even eat all those leaves they cut?

Charlie: Hey, what's that slurping noise?

Wally: It's an anteater!

Tina: Vacuum-cleaner alert!

Jose: !Cuidado! Onward troops! !Rapidamente!
