Fungus Among Us
For the next 3-7 days, have students observe their cultures (with and without a hand lens) at 1- or 2-day intervals. Do not allow students to open the containers in which molds are growing.
NOTE: Some breads may grow mold in as little as 24 hours; others may require 7 days or more.
Have students record their observations on their data sheets. When all or most cultures have visible molds (some breads treated with preservatives may not grow mold within the time allowed), have students make and record their final observations.
