Areas of Focus within this PowerPoint: This PowerPoint begins describing what the Kingdom Fungi is in a series of slides. The slides break down the general description of a Fungi one step at a time. Next students are asked a question as to Fungi Evolution with answer provided on the next slide. A tour our some really cool Fungi follows with descriptive information. A red slide (critical notes) asks students to create a list of the positives and negatives of Fungi for the rest of the PowerPoint when things are mention. The next few slides discuss how Fungi are placed into Divisions and many of the Divisions are described in a series of slides. Chytridiomycota / Primitive Fungi -Live on land and water, -Great decomposers. Zygomycota / Molds Mycorrhizal fungi in soil. Ascomycota / Sac Fungi:75% of all Fung,Yeast,Truffles. A few slides discuss fermentation. An activity has students use yeast, water, and sugar and observe fermentation. Carbon dioxide and alcohol are produced. Students can also observe a pH change using cabbage juice. Directions are built into the slideshow. Mycophycophyta / Lichens and then described: Fungi and algae live together (symbiotic)The students learn three types of lichens and a slide offers a venture outside of the building to try and identify lichens on nearby trees and rocks around the school. The next Division covered is Deuteromycota / Imperfect Fungi:The leftovers, Includes Athletes foot. Basidiomycota / Club Fungi:
Mushrooms. Decomposition of wood. I briefly discuss the dangers of eating unidentified mushrooms. A quiz follows 1-10 that has the students guess the Division of Fungi. This is a very difficult quiz, but throughout the presentation students have been creating tiny sketches to help them. Answers are provided after the Quiz. A neat activity follows that has students label the parts of a mushroom by creating a whimsical "Mushroom House" complete with gnomes, and fairies and things. The parts of the mushroom are provided on a slide. This is a great fun / learning activity that breaks up an otherwise technically difficult presentation on Fungi. The presentation then discusses the dangers associated with "Magic Mushrooms", then discusses the 3 roles of Fungi as Mutualistic symbionts, - discusses hyphae, mycellium network, Saprobic Role, and Parasitic. Asexual reproduction with a focus on budding in Yeast, Sporulation, and the PowerPoint discusses mold. The PowerPoint concludes presenting ways to prevent mold growth. This is a technical PowerPoint that will challenge and excite your students. A review game concludes the lesson bundle. Answers and template are provided.
This PowerPoint includes critical notes (Red Slides), exciting visuals, challenge questions, activities with directions and more. Text is usually placed at the top of the slide so it can be read from all angles of a classroom. Color coded slides, as well as a shade technique is used to increase student focus and allows the teacher to control the pace of the lesson. These PowerPoints are meant to be interactive as possible and ask many questions, provides built in review opportunities, explains directions to activities, and much more.
