A task-based learning model defines the process whereby students organize teams to accomplish some tasks by using and integrating what they have learnt in a creative way through access to the resources available on the network. The task-based learning model can be further broken down into sub-divisions to address different perspectives. The mission-based learning model is one of those. The mission-based learning model particularly helps students develop attitude and ability to accomplish some special task accepting the risk that they may fail. The main characteristics of a mission-based learning model are commitment, risk-taking, persistence and learning by error. In this study, we develop a typical instructional activity, named "Telling Story about Paper Bill", as mission-based learning model. The activity we propose is intended to help students integrate knowledge such as history, geography, environment, animal-care and computer skill. During this process of integration, students should develop attitudes of commitment, risk-taking and persistence, and the ability to accomplish tasks collaboratively.
