Lesson 7: The features of mushrooms

The focus of this lesson is to look in more detail at how mycologists describe the various features of fungi, specifically studying the mushroom shaped fungi. Our Exploring Fungi mycologist Dr. Sandra Tuszynska has prepared a video describing the features of mushrooms. Students will use shop-bought common mushrooms as a case study, looking at the observable features of mushroom. Students will learn the principles of scientific drawing labelling the various morphological parts of the mushroom with scientific terminology. Students will practice their scientific drawing skills and draw the whole mushroom and a cross section.
