Your gifted students will be challenged while completing this mushroom dissection handout. Your students will follow printed directions to dissect a common "pizza mushroom". As they dissect their mushroom, they will draw and label pictures, describe details of what they are seeing, and make connections to how this mushroom is similar to all other fungi. This 2 day lab will keep your students interested and will make them look at their pizza in a different way. An adapted version is also available (Mushroom Dissection IEP student handout).
