About Toca Lab: Plants

Toca Lab: Plants teaches students learn more about the science of nurturing  and the everyday plants they can find all around them. Toca Lab: Plants let's kids explore the scientific world of plants and immerses them into a fun lab world with lots of fun and humor.

Teacher Review

Available for iOS, Android, and Kindle Fire, Toca Lab: Plants is an excellent way to introduce kids to the world of botany. To start, kids can pull down the window shade for all the list of plants. It starts with the Madonna Lily (Lilium candidum) and from there kids can make their way to explore 35 different plant characters. Kids can discover plants from five groups: green algae, mosses, ferns, trees and flowering pants. I love that kids also get to learn the Latin names of plants.

Kids will collect plants, interact with by touching the surface around it, conduct experiments to learn about them and watch it grow around the terrain. Kids will find out about the plant food, seeds, watering tank, crossbreeding and more.

Kids can explore all of the instruments in the lab to help the plant grow such as grow light, watering tank and nutrition station. Kids will find that each plant has their own characteristic where some like the grow light and some want to just wiggle away!

Experiment with plant characters, evolve them into new species and discover their unique personalities. Keep collecting plants until you’ve collected them all! The world of science just got a little bit weirder and a lot more fun with Toca Lab: Plants!

Just like with the first app in the Toca Lab Series, Toca Lab: Elements, your curiosity will lead the way. Choose your plant, then visit five different locations in the lab:

‚óŹ Grow light: Shine the light on your plant and watch what happens! Does your plant bask and happily sigh in the light, or groan and wriggle away? What happens when you turn the light up a notch or two?

Watering tank: Put your plant in the tank and fill it up with water. Will your plant float? How does your plant behave when it’s soaking wet?

Nutrition station: What’s the optimal diet for your plant? Try the three different nutrition formulas and discover which ones your plant character likes!

Cloning machine: Spin the wheel on the cloning machine and before you know it, you’ll have five little versions of your plant. Wonder what the clones can do? Experiment and find out!

Crossbreeding apparatus: Here you can mix two plants to create something unexpected. Try it and see what happens!

Have fun experimenting at each station to see how the plants evolve. Keep experimenting until you’ve collected all 35 plant characters in the app. Once you’ve collected a plant, keep experimenting to continue to evolve it! Who says kids can’t be scientists? Toca Lab: Plants brings out the budding botanist in everybody!
