From mushrooms to molds, fungi have always proven to be tricky subjects for the scientists who have studied them. Despite sharing certain characteristics with both animals and plants, these strange and wondrous organisms are in a class by themselves -- the Kingdom Fungi. In Fungi, students will examine the characteristics of these simple organisms, from their unusual methods of consuming food to their use of spores in reproduction. They'll be introduced to the mighty mold that produces penicillin and some deadly mushrooms that are far from being your grocery store variety. In addition, a hands-on investigation reveals the secret of how yeast makes bread dough rise. One of four volumes in the Simple Organisms in Action DVD Series in the Schlessinger Science Library. Part of the Schlessinger Science Library in Action Collection. This title correlates to the National Science Education Standards for Life Science: structure & function in living systems, reproduction & heredity, regulation & behavior, populations & ecosystems, and diversity & adaptations of organisms. A teacher's guide featuring additional information on the topic, vocabulary words, discussion questions, follow-up activities and lists of recommended books & Internet resources is included and available online.

Only available in the US.
