OSS project integration into curriculum : “Mushroom Photo Hunt”

Science and Mycology: How long does the mushroom trip last?  What are the edible/ non-edible mushroom types growing in Lithuanian forests?

 To help our students answer these questions  we had to think of the ways how to do it in the most interesting way. The idea for OSS inspired activity came during one of the OSS team ‘s meetings when one of the students shared his experience after picking mushrooms in the forest and showed some photographs to prove this. It was decided to organize the “Mushroom  Photo Hunt” to make a portfolio which could be used as a visual material during Science and Biology lessons.  Students and teachers willing to take part in the activity were asked to take pictures of the mushrooms they happened to find in the forest and send them to the OSS working team. We have collected the impressive number of astonishing pictures.
