The emergency exit to outdoor learning...
Thanks for the mention, Juliet! Can I be cheeky and add that the Field Studies Council 'Name Trail' Key to Commoner Fungi (by Holden & Hamper!) arose from the same activities - we still use the original version with schools.
Thanks for all the super links, especially the teachers notes on fungi. Your picture of fly agaric is super... wish we could see more of those in our local woodland!
We have lots of fungi here as well, being a cool, rainy spot on the globe. I can't wait to take the kids on a fungi hunt! This post will be a great resource. Thanks.
Thanks for the reminder that it's ok to touch fungi.
I LOVE photographing fungi! Our children discovered some amazingly tiny fungi growing out of the sleepers in our sandpit this autumn/winter . It held their fascination for days and surprisingly no one destroyed it ... well not on purpose anyway!Donna :) :)
Just need to add that a leading participant in putting the activities together is Liz Holden (Grampian Fungus Group) whose idea it was originally. Most of the credit goes to Liz!
