App Title: Lorax Garden (app review by 7 year old first grade students)
Grade Level: Elementary (all ages)
My students have been interested in sharing their opinions about some of our apps. Before school was out this year, I had them write the what, why and how of their favorite apps. The Lorax Garden (Dr. Seuss!) was featured as one of Apple’s Earth Day apps. What a find! And just in time for our Natural Resources focus in science.
I would recommend this app for anyone. It’s a great companion to the book, The Lorax. Contributors to this review are: Jack, Nate, Daven, Trent, Joseph, Caleb, and Ethan. Thanks guys!
Purpose: A You will learn that water helps trees grow. If you water trees, you will help them grow and help the earth.
Program Functionality: A You get to plant trees and flowers. The trees come out of a machine. When you grow flowers you get hearts. The hearts help the truffula trees grow, then you put it in the forest. When your forest is finished, you can get to another level. On the levels, push continue and have fun.
Overall Educational Value: A When you start learning about plants and natural resources it is good to play this game then. It feels exciting to help the earth.
