FC: My Amazon Adventure By Colton Ward
1: To all my amazon animal friends march 2010
2: Here we go,off to Rio de Janeiro. | Landed in Trinidad and now of to Rio de Janeiro. Oh no! | We have just been alerted that our engine isn't working! | We are CRASHING!!!
3: WE WERE GOING D O W N !!
4: Here we are, all alone and TRAPPED in the... | AMAZON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! | Just ordinary 6th graders who wanted to take a field trip, and THIS HAPPENS!!!!
5: "Now listen everybody," I stated. "DON"T PANIC!!!" "First, let's treat our wounds. That's what we need to do before we set off to find food and shelter. " I told them. There were some bad injuries.
6: NOW FOOD!!!!
7: First, I caught a Caiman. Then, I got some garlic and onions, and FINALLY got some coconut milk. YUM!!
8: As we ate our food, rain started to fall. At first, it was just a little sprinkle, but then, it started pouring. Soon, the entire jungle floor was wet! AHHHH!!!! We decided to go look for a burrow in a tree that we could all fit in, so we could stay dry. Finally, we found what we were looking for. A nice little cozy hole in a tree.
9: But wait... This burrow was home to a SLIMY, SLITHERY, SNAKE!!!!!!!!!!
11: We were able to find a different tree burrow and stayed there until FINALLY the rain passed. Whoo. I'm so glad no one got hurt by the snake. | Once the rain finally passed, we set off to find Obidos, a city by the Amazon Jungle, when we saw a MASSIVE, SPOTTED, BEAST!!!!!! It was the king of the jungle, ruler of all animals, and predator to about every living thing in the Amazon. It was a... | J A G U A R !!!!
12: But luckily, it wasn't after us. It was after a cute little monkey. A sweet, innocent, cute, little monkey. Wait, an innocent MONKEY!!!
13: "WE MUST SAVE HIM!!!!" I shouted. My friend, Wesley, could have died that day. What he did was BRAVE, INCREDIBLE, AND REALLY IDIOTIC.
14: He jumped in front of the jaguar to save the little monkey. The jaguar lunged at Wesley, but Wesley was to quick. He grabbed a sharp branch from a tree and stuck it out in front of him. It went passed the skin and into the jaguars body, but took Wesley with it. He screamed,"FOR THE MONKEY!" and that was it. We didn't hear anything else. As we sadly walked away, we heard someone ask, "Why so sad?" "Wesley!" we shouted together. "You're alive1" "And so is the monkey he said bravely." While we were celebrating, a helicopter flew over us. "Hey look," Hayden cried. "A helicopter coming to save us! YAY!"
16: We were finally rescued. The helicopter took us to Obidos where our parents were waiting. From the air, it looked as if they were crying, but I couldn't be sure. When we landed,I realized they were crying. As soon as they saw me, they ran right over and hugged me about one thousand times. I saw Hayden and Sean with their parents too. Everything was perfect. I knew that life was going to be normal again..
18: Author's Note I made this Mixbook for a project in Mrs. Amos' 6th grade class. This was a really fun way to wrap up a really fun unit. Thanks Mrs. Amos, for a wonderful unit.
