Mushrooms are the ‘fun-guy’ in class!
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.
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.
Resources and Worksheets
Each lesson plan is supported by multiple resources and worksheets for the students to complete. These resources are downloaded automatically with every lesson plan pack.
Videos and Links
A "Mushroom Library" of videos and resources has been created, to further assist students understanding about the unique life cycle of a mushroom and how they grow.
Free Mushroom Kits
As part of the Mushrooms in School program, once a year the AMGA provide free mushroom kits to schools, to aid in-class learning. Kits are limited, so we encourage you to register early!
REGISTER YOUR INTEREST
For the 2024 MUSHROOMS IN SCHOOLS program!
We are now inviting schools from all over Australia to register their interest for the 2024 Mushrooms In Schools Program. Organised by the Australian Mushroom Growers' Association, the program will run throughout Term 3 2024, with mushroom growing kits delivered to schools by the last week of Term 2, ready for a Term 3 start.
Mushroom kits are FREE, but they are limited, so it's important to register your schools interest ASAP. We can't wait to bring this program to Australian schools again in 2024.
