In this lesson, students will learn what fungi is, and what the role of fungi is in the environment. The activity is going to be spore prints! Students will collect mushrooms and let the spores settle on paper overnight.
This activity fosters students’ sense of curiosity and can be done indoors, outdoors, or a combination of the two. Students view a virtual presentation, then bring an activity sheet outdoors, looking for a variety of natural objects.
In part two, students are introduced to endothermic animals, or “warm-blooded” animals that maintain a regular body temperature internally.
