The Mysterious World of Fungi NEW
(Grades 4-7, rising)

During our visit to the mysterious and wonderful world of fungi we’ll look at the smelly, cool, and bizarre characteristics that many fungi possess. We’ll begin each day with discussion and an in-class activity, followed by an outdoor hunt for mushrooms. We hope to find a variety of fungi that we can collect and bring back to the classroom for a closer look and possible identification. We’ll also take a trip to Ijams Nature Center. Instructor: Whitaker Hoskins.
