Mushroom Puzzle, Lisheen Montessori

  • Botany 3-9
Parts of a mushroom – Lisheen Montessori
  • Traditionally, in a primary classroom, you will find puzzles for parts of a flower, parts of a leaf, parts of a tree, parts of a root system, and parts of a seed. You may not see parts of a mushroom as it is not a plant.

  • When learning about mushrooms out of curiosity and while studying the Fungus Kingdom, it was nice to have a hands-on material that could serve as a visual, spatial, and sensorial tool.

  1. Thanks for sharing the beautiful puzzle. Although is not a “staple” puzzle, it is such an important living organism for children to study. It is a wonderful invitation to be able to investigate why fungi are not classified as plants even though there are some similarities.
