Abstract

Gardens, in the larger context, nature, have long been a component of what educational progressives have associated with real life. In other words such an understanding emphasizes the continued construction and reconstruction of science concept in situated practice. Accordingly, this study designed a Game-based learning App in relation to Garden Science to facilitate science learning. Through the various human-device interactions with the game, learners can sustain their interest to obtain the related science knowledge and increase their cognitive processes to enhance learning effectiveness by the entertaining quality of the game. There were five categories in this study which included insects, fruits, flowers, agricultural products and birds. The learners can become familiar with the properties, growth and predators of the organisms in each category through game interactions. The App is available for download on both iOS and Android, and it is also promoted through schools and online
