Mushrooms are a kind of fungus that usually look like umbrellas and grow in places like yards, forests, fields, and gardens.

Did you know?

  1. Because mushrooms are a fungus and not a plant, they don’t make their own food.
  2. They don’t even need sunlight to grow! Imagine what it would be like to live in the dark all the time!
  3. Mushrooms absorb the nutrients they need from the dead and rotting plants and animals where they live.
  4. Most of the fungus is actually growing underneath the ground which is beneficial to trees by sharing nutrients
  5. Mushrooms can help prevent cancer and a great source of vitamin D.
