Yikes! There is fungus among us! Your middle school students will enjoy this role-playing simulation that's designed to help teach them about the typical lifecycle of a fungus. Students assume the roles of fungi, spores, living and dead organisms, bacteria, and rain. As they move around a playing field collecting food and water chips, they discover how the organisms interact, the special adaptations they have for survival, and the characteristics of the fungus's biotic habitat.
