Lesson 10: Magnifying Fungi

Lesson 10 elaborates on ways mycologists further classify fungi, based on the types of spores fungi produce. Students will be introduced to the microscopic features of fungi by examining fruiting bodies with magnifying lenses, and if resources permit, through more sophisticated equipment such as a microscope. This allows students to connect more closely to the scientific concept of morphology (the study of the form or features of living things). Microscopic examination also allows for the development of a more intimate relationship with fungi. Students will be able to focus in more detail on the lifecycle of fungi by understanding their reproductive unit – the spore.
