Just add water and watch mushrooms spring up across the curriculum! As with the best Montessori-style activities, direct experience forms the foundation from which a whole series of interrelated learning events emerge. This completely self-contained kit provides context for indoor gardening, life cycle lessons, sorting and sequencing (mushrooms progress through five visually distinct stages as they grow), food preparation, and—our favorite part—serving and eating! A 6 to 7 week project from first watering to last harvest. Kits are shipped directly to you from the grower between October 1 and May 1. We send a Kit Coupon, which you return to the grower when you’re ready to begin. Please note: Kits cannot be shipped outside the contiguous 48 states.
