Best Retirement Songs

WebQuest: Mycology

INTRODUCTION Fungi (which incidentally, are not animals or plants) have been traditionally one of the groups of beings treated worse living at all levels of curricula. No matter what course of primary education or career you are enrolled in biology: mushrooms are always a mystery to you unless you can get you life and learn at your own risk. In order to provide you with such a task, I propose the following WebQuest, with which you started in the world of mycology. And I'm not talking about the "gastronomicología" exclusive that many practitioners, the fungi are much more than scrambled with mushrooms and mushroom consumption. It is estimated that there are over 1,000,000 species of fungi (which is not bad, considering that only known, to give a few examples, 9,000 species 6,000 of birds or mammals), and these include antibiotic-producing organisms (such as penicillin) and other drugs, the yeast that allow the production of bread, wine and beer for our crop pests and many more. Fungi, as we shall also meet in nature with some of the most important ecological roles that can be imagined: they are genuine biological recycling stations and also allow for the proper development of many plants. It seems worthwhile to know a little more depth, much as those who design the curriculum have been ostracized. TASK

The objective of the activity is that the student complete it starts the knowledge of fungi and is able to place them in the context of living, gaining an overview of their diversity and relevance

PROCESS comply with the proposed task I have selected a series of links that have been structured in four thematic blocks. Without it being necessary, it would be very desirable that the student works blocks (not the links within each block) in the proposed order, in order to acquire the concepts of the most natural way possible

first block: What are fungi?
http://www / forest / life / hongos.html # cell
http:/ / / publications / avayper / SEPOCT / RUIZ.pdf

Block Two: The diversity of fungi
http:/ /

Block Three: The fungi and ecosystem / micorrizas.html

Block Four: Mushrooms and man / articles / other / micorrizas.html
http : / / / wiki / Saccharomyces_ellipsoideus

The student must submit a report in a PowerPoint presentation on linking with fluency and elegance the answers to these questions, illustrating both the diversity and aesthetic value of these beloved agencies :

What are fungi?
What differentiates them from other groups of living things?
How is the life cycle of a fungus?
Is it the same fungus that a mushroom?
What types of fungi are there?
Why are so important in nature?
How important to man?

Students should be included in the last slide his assessment of the activity and suggestions for improving it deems appropriate. It highly appreciated the critical spirit and capacity for innovation. CONCLUSION

I hope that the activity has been useful. If you have aroused any interest in knowing more about fungi'll be much happier if they only served to recite without rhyme or quite a lot of concepts and nombrajos in Latin.
