Here's also what we figured out:
1. Mold is an organism...yup, it's ALIVE! It's actually classified as a fungus.
2. It likes warm, moist environments, but there are some kinds that like cooler places.
3. It grows on stuff it consumes that's dead--like plant parts!
4. Since it's a living thing, it gets bigger as it consumes stuff. This means this pattern of something getting bigger/something getting smaller continues to emerge!
