Missions found on the Passport Mission Control

Educators can order Passports in bulk for children when you pledge to participate in Outdoor Classroom Day QLD, or with the order form here. 

Register on the ‘Passport Mission Control’ website ( to receive access to hundreds of Nature Play Missions.  These missions easily become great in-class activities that encourage outdoor play and learning, creativity, discovery and exploration. 

When Missions are achieved, children are encouraged to reflect upon, comment on and rate each activity online. The physical passports are also used for documentation of activities.

Passport Missions can also be used as a homework alternative, with the bonus that children who have spent their afterschool hours outdoors, rather than in front of a screen, will be more engaged for learning the next day.

Read ‘How to use your Passport in Groups’ for more tips on how to use the Passports in education and for help on how to use the Passport Mission Control website.
