Print-at-Home Mini Passport!

The Mini Passport is a simple one-page sheet that you can print out and fold into a small booklet. With a parent’s help, children can text each site’s keyword to discover a unique nature mission. Once the mission is complete, get it stamped at the Nature Net site if you’re there (remember, parents can initial the Passport instead).

Pasaporte a la Naturaleza

El Mini-pasaporte es una hoja de una página que las familias pueden imprimir y doblar en forma de libreta. Con la ayuda de un padre, los niños pueden enviar un mensaje de texto con la palabra clave de cada sitio para descubrir una misión de naturaleza única. Cuando la misión sea completada, puede ser estampada en el sitio si estás ahí o tus padres pueden firmar sus iniciales en el pasaporte.
El pasaporte le da a los niños  la oportunidad de descubrir 19 nuevas maneras de conocer el mundo a su alrededor.
