5th Grade Fungi Discovery Stations


Next week at the RBE Library, our 5th graders are going to be coming to the library to learn all about fungi.

There will be some fungus among us! See the full lesson here.

There are 4 stations that the students will be visiting. As they independently go from station to station, they will be taking CLOZE notes on their Fungi Discovery Stations Packet.


The students have 4 guiding questions that they will be thinking about as they visit each station:

  1. What do fungi need to survive?
  2. Why are fungi important to the food web?
  3. How are the species of fungi different? (mold, mold, yeast, mushrooms)
