Are you grossed out by the word "fungus"? Does it automatically send feelings of disgust to mind? You might be surprised to know that the fungi kingdom is actually very diverse, and many different types of fungi are used and consumed by humans. For example, yeast is a type of fungus that is essential in making wine, beer and bread. Mushrooms are often used in traditional medicines, and some types are highly prized as gourmet food ingredients. Learn more about the fungus growing around us with this neat slide set! This set of slides features five different examples of fungi growing amongst us today. The set includes 1 slide specimen each of Rhizopus (bread mold), penicillum, lichens, coprinus (mushroom), and saccharomyces (yeast). It also comes with a guide of interesting facts about each of the specimens. This is a great science resource for any classroom, and is a great alternative to show students if access to these types of fungus is not readily available. An awesome home-schooling resource, this set can be used with any compound microscope you have at home or at school. A great scientific educational gift for the aspiring young scientist in your family!
