Byron found some bracket fungi growing at his house and some more growing on the trees at school. This was great as the students were able to examine the fungi up close and compare it to the images and diagrams in their journal story. The students also completed research booklets about bracket fungi on Google Docs. Having the real thing really helped support the Vikings understanding about this type of fungi.
What a great learning experience for the Vikings reading group!
