Fungi: Plant, Animal, or
Something Else Entirely?
Fungi Can . . .
• grow in soil.
• have one cell or many cells.
• reproduce by spores, which are
similar to seeds.
• have more than one cell nucleus.
Fungi Cannot . . .
• make their own food, since their
cells have no chloroplasts.
Then what is a fungi?
• a mushroom
• mold
• yeast
• mildew
Where do they get food?
• They absorb food from dead things or
from other living things.
• When you see mold growing on food,
the mold is eating that food to survive.
• Mushrooms growing in dirt get
nourishment from the soil.
Fungi are . . .
• neither plant nor animal!
• in a group all by themselves!
