Gro Garden is an iPad app designed to help students learn about gardening. The app features a virtual garden in which children plant seeds then water and fertilize the seeds until they become plants. Once the plants pop-up through the dirt students have to continue watering and fertilizing until the plants are ready to harvest. Students can control the amount of water and sunshine their plants receive throughout the virtual growing process.
After harvesting plants from their Gro Garden gardens students can take the plants and feed them to their hungry friends in the virtual cottage. Scraps from the meals can be composted to create fertilizer for the next growing season.
As the spring approaches we’ll be noticing gardens popping-up all around us. Gro Garden could be a good app for students to use to learn what makes a garden grow.
Gro Garden is currently priced at $2.99.
