"Responsibility meets eco-awareness in this app, perfect for little nature lovers to learn more about plant life." education.com
As an educational tool, Green Up gives children a hands-on way to learn the basics of ecology and biodiversity.
Kids will also be learning some gardening basics—plants need to be watered and fertilized, and protected from freezing temperatures and pests.
They will be practicing what they learned at school about the parts of a plant and parts of a flower. The iPad version provides supporting text.
They will experiment with concepts like pollination and learn first-hand when it happens during a plant’s life-cycle.
They will grow their own plants; when a plant’s cycle is complete, they can collect the plant in an album.
Each climate has its own theme music: four works by the French composer Erik Satie (1866-1925) help to create an evocative atmosphere for each landscape.
