    Dear Journey North:
    Hello, my name is Erin Witt and my partner for this challenge
    question is Callie Pierce. We live in Maryville, Tn. We are in seventh
    grade at Maryville Middle School. Our science teacher is Mrs. McGinley.
    Our response to Challenge Question #10 is the following:The pesticide
    that was being used to kill insects and pests was contaminated with
    DDT. Therefore, the worms were exposed to DDT.When the robins ate
    the worms they were also exposed to DDT.

    Thank you,
    Erin Witt and Callie Pierce
