On this episode of The Children’s Hour we explore mushrooms with mycology educator and author, Peter McCoy. We’ll learn about how the fruits of fungi are the smallest parts of these incredible organisms, which can be found everywhere in nature from the tops of mountains to the bottom of the sea, and how they are a part of all living and dead creatures on Earth.
There are many resources to learn more about mushrooms. We like this site with resources for teachers, parents, and kids from the North American Mycological Association that’s broken down by age and grade level. Find books for young people on mycology here. This Utah State site is full of puzzles, games, and more educational resources about fungi and lichens. The British Mycology Society also has a site that is loaded with curriculum, games, resources, and more.
