I want my kids to work in groups for a project and on my end on the laptop, I can click between people and groups, but on the iPad, there is no option to get to groups.  How are the kids supposed to sign up for a group if they cannot see more than just people on the iPad?

Hi Amanda ~

You're correct. Students will need to use Safari or another browser to navigate to People then to Groups to sign up. I experienced this myself with a group of students just earlier this week. I try to add this memo in the assignment instructions as a "footnote" (ie: If you're using the Canvas Student app and need to sign up for a group, you will need to do so through Safari.)

There was a feature idea for this a while ago, but it was archived due to low vote counts. If you're interested, you could resubmit it! There would likely be a group of Canvas Community members from the Canvas Mobile Users Group‌ that would chime in.
