Are you still not convinced that little kids and disabled children CAN do nature journaling? Or maybe you think you don't need another nature scavenger hunt printable because you've tried them all before? Well, read on, because this Fall Nature Sound Hunt differs in FIVE important ways from other scavenger hunts.
Or if you prefer, watch on, because I made a video about my latest digital download:
What makes this nature scavenger hunt awesome? Well, scavenger hunts (or treasure hunts) are a terrific way to get prompts to fill the pages of a nature journal!
But it's no use me finding ways to make nature journaling accessible and inclusive for children of all ages and abilities, if one of the main ways to obtain prompts to use to fill the journal pages isn't also accessible and inclusive.
In the video you will see both my autistic sons enjoying this nature sound hunt with me. My son Owen is non-speaking, and uses an iPad to communicate.
The Fall Nature Sound Hunt digital package isn't just a printable list but also comes with lots of ideas for:
- how to use it;
- core words you can easily use with this activity and some ideas for how to incorporate them;
- books to read in conjunction with the sound hunt; and
- if you have a copy of the First Then Visual Schedule HD iOS app or you're interested in buying it, then I can share the checklist seen in the video for you to just download and use on your phone.
Yep, zero preparation required on your part!

I've got plans to make additional Fall scavenger digital handouts that cover the other senses, and I will be putting some together for the other seasons as well. Which one(s) are you most looking forward to or, more importantly, is there one you need? Let me know!
