Organisms need to be cut and pasted into their correct places in a food web. Two differenciated versions of this activity here - one with clues. I then give the students a number of questions based around the completed web.

Funky Fungi workshop

Funky Fungi workshop

All you need for a set of interesting activities that offer the pupils events providing possible answers to the question ‘What’s your favourite fungus?’ with the aim of revealing interactively just how much we depend on fungi in our daily lives and to promote awareness and understanding of fungi. Feedback has been extremely positive from children and adults alike when the workshop was offered to parties of school children (numbering from 15 to 40) in years 8-10 during National Science Week 2005 and 2006.
