Mushrooms are the ‘fun-guy’ in class!

The Australian Mushroom Growers Association has developed the Mushrooms in Schools program, to help primary school educators teach students all about the mighty mushroom!

Mushroom education is important at a primary school level, to ensure children are aware that mushrooms are not a fruit, or a vegetable – mushrooms are fungi and belong to a separate food kingdom to fruits and veggies. Being fungi, mushrooms grow in a very unique way and have a completely different nutrition profile too.

About the Mushrooms in Schools program.

The Mushrooms in Schools program, developed and funded by the AMGA, offers a variety of free resources to assist in-class learning for primary schools. These include free lesson plans and resources and once a year, FREE MUSHROOM KITS.

10 FREE Lesson plans

Lesson plans are all linked to the Australian Curriculum and encourage enquiry based learning.  Subjects include Mathematics, Science, Humanities and Social Science and much more.
