  • Hi Everyone! Today we are examining the Fairy ring mushrooms.
  • These guys are heterotrophs, but decompose. This means their Saprophytic. The one I'm looking at ate part of a dead deer last week!
  • What have you noticed, Jacob?
  • Don't forget they live in forests and grasslands!
  • Oh! I almost forgot! Did you know that they reproduce with spores?
  • Thanks! It shows the fruiting body, the stalk, the cap, hyphae, and mycelium.
  • Great diagram, Maddie!
  • Aw! I was about to share my fun fact... :(
  • It's starting to rain! Everyone in the tent!
  • Fairy mushrooms help humans and animals by decomposing unwanted dead organisms.
  • Fun fact: Fairy Ring Mushrooms got their name from people who once believed that mushrooms growing in a circle followed the path made by fairies dancing in a ring.
  • Who would want to share want we learned?
  • The genus and species for Fairy ring mushrooms is Marasmius oreades.
  • The End
  • Great Job, Everyone!
