After studying a unit on the Fungi Kingdom, have the students celebrate fungus by holding a fungus feast. During the unit, you should discuss the different ways that fungus is used as food indirectly as well directly. Students are permitted to bring in food made with a fungus or fungus byproduct. Naturally, you will want the students to explain the fungus relationship prior to the feast starting!
