Fabulous Fungi

Appropriate for grades:  3 - 12 


Most students, and their parents, do not make the connection between a mushroom and fungus.  Although they know that a mushroom is a fungus, they don't see the mushroom as a "fruiting body" there only to produce and disperse spores for reproduction.

This presentation will introduce students to the Fungi Kingdom and will point out that fungi are both beneficial and harmful.  They are great recyclers that break down organic matter.

Students should be reminded that fungus identification is very difficult and should be left to the experts.  There are many that are poisonous that could kill your or make you very sick.

Scientists who study fungi - the science of "mycology" - are called "mycologists". 

Students will learn that fungi are made up of two main parts: the "mycelium" below the substrate, and the "fruiting body" above the surface.  The concealed mycelium is made up a network of thin, moist thread-like "filaments" called "hyphae".  Exoenzymes are secreted into the environment where they digest the food into small molecules that can be absorbed and used by the fungus.

The role of the fruiting body is explored and students will see images of several types of mushrooms demonstrating the wide differences in shape, size, colour and growing location.

Drawings of mushrooms illustrate the various parts of a fruiting body and the mycelium.

Included are examples of fungi growing on organic matter and students will learn that fungi that feed on dead matter are called "saprotrophic" while those feeding on living organisms are called "parasitic".

"Three days in the life of a mushroom" depicts the life-cycle of a visible fruiting body.

The presentation concludes with some fun fungi and mushroom facts.

New terms:  heterotrophic, mycology, cholorophyll, mycelium, fruiting body, substrate, filament, hyphae, phypha, thallus, exnzymes, spores, primorida, basidia, gills,
