Mighty mushrooms

We got mushrooms from the market, mum came home with them. One day over a few weeks, guess what happened? A big mushroom appeared, and mum knocked it off with the door of her car. I took the mushroom to school. The kids kept asking me the same question all over again. "Where did you get it from?", and I kept saying "from seeds".


Mum told me mushrooms grow from spores. Mushrooms don't grow into a big tree, but they do grow into mushrooms. They are fungus. Mushrooms need moist, water, cold and in the dark. We keep our mushrooms in the garage in a bucket full of dirt. The white part in there are the fungus.

I cutted some mushrooms for dinner. I got the mushrooms from my bucket. They were very white. They were yummy.

  1. That is great Esmee! Not to many kids your age like to eat mushrooms. What is your favourite mushroom recipe? Mine is Mushroom Pizza Pockets.
