Mushrooms are never green
We decided to have circle time under the monkey tree-because it was semi-dry under there. During circle time we talked about mushrooms. Did you know that there aren't any green mushrooms because they don't have chlorophyll? Luckily we had Teacher Roo, the biologist, to explain mushrooms and fungi to us all! We learned that mushrooms are not plants. Also that they don't have seeds but use spores to grow new mushrooms. We will continue to study mushrooms this fall since they are so prolific this time of year.
