This resource will come in handy if you are planning to explore woodlands in fall in your Montessori and early childhood classroom. Children often get fascinated with mushrooms they find outdoors. It is always a good idea to bring up the topic of edible and nonedible mushrooms to create awareness of mushrooms that can cause serious harm.

HERE is what’s included:

  • 10 x labeled picture cards with edible mushrooms (Europe & North America)
  • 10 x labeled picture cards with poisonous mushrooms (Europe & North America)

Gather books about mushrooms for children to explore.

Print on card stock and laminate for more extended use. Cut cards. Place the label cards in a row. Explain the difference between the two types of mushrooms. Invite the child to sort cards into two categories.

Young children can be encouraged to match the mushrooms cards if you print them twice and draw the mushrooms they like the most using their choice of art medium.

Older children might be inspired to research and create their own book about wild types of mushroom that grow in your region.
