The Nature Passport app is a mobile resource to help children play, explore and learn in nature – at school, at home, in parks and in wild places. With activities designed by experts in outdoor play and experiential education, the app is an awesome tool for both schools and families!
Nature Passport activities are written to align with a broad range of learning and development areas. They can support educational outcomes in STEM subjects, literacy and social-emotional learning.
Activities are saved to the Journal section of the app, allowing classes to reflect and build on those experiences once they are back in the classroom. Journal entries can form the basis of creative writing assignments, science investigations and more.
This app is ideal for group work outside the classroom. Each Nature Passport account allows multiple users to work in groups on separate devices while sharing a common journal.
Nature Passport is full of innovative nature-based games, crafty projects, simple experiments, and fresh inspiration for outdoor play.
The app gets kids active outdoors – running, jumping, balancing, climbing, and rolling! Rediscover simple but essential childhood experiences with activities that promote physical health.
Nature Passport encourages group time outdoors, promoting social connection and building fun shared memories. Collaborate, play, explore and learn outdoors together.
To access the ‘My Outdoor Classroom’ pack:
Nature Passport was created by two non-profits: IslandWood in Washington, United States, and Nature Play Western Australia. The app is based on a successful, paper-based programme in Australia that has reached more than 600,000 families. It uses technology to connect families and schools across the globe with the natural world.
