Tuesday Froglets, Week 5. Mushrooms

Today's Froglets began their class by dissecting crimini mushrooms.  We learned new words, gills, stalk, ring, cap and were able to identify each of these on our cutting board.  
Armed with our new knowledge, we headed out in search of mushrooms.  It didn't take long before we found some!
Can you identify the gills on this lovely specimin?  
Our hike brought us to "Boat Fort" where we read two books about mushrooms.  
Mushroom in the Rain by Mirra Ginsburg and Life Cycle of a Mushroom by Angela Royston.
A discovers an amazing specimin near the creek!
Our class hiked back to the shelter to make mushroom models with playdough.  They made all kinds of mushrooms and some pizza's too!
See you next week!
