Storyboard Description

So what are fungi exactly? Well fungi are a member of the group of Eukaryotic Organisms that include unicellular microorganism such as yeasts, molds, as well multi-cellular fungi that produce familiar fruiting forms known as mushrooms. They are not all microscopic, mushrooms, molds, and mildew are examples of this. You can see most fungi feed through microscopic threads called hyphae. These threads dig into a food source, like dead wood, bread, leaves or plants. They release chemicals that break down the food. The fungi then digests this and uses the nutrients. Just so you know the word microscopic means very tiny particles you can't see unless you have a microscope. Fungi feed on dead animals, wallpaper paste, fruit, or even on living things. They will eat about everything that was alive at once. Majority of fungi are helpful. They can break down dead matter. Think of them as the planet's clean up crew. But also there's the bad fungi. They can cause problems like destroying your clothes, books, or food, and they can cause diseases and get you really sick. Molds and mildews hurt growing plants. Most fungi reproduce through fruiting bodies that release spores. The spores are microscopic bodies that float through the air. When these spores land on food, they start to grow and eat food. That's what I know about fungi I hope I taught you something today!! :)
