Welcome, friends. You have been chosen to be a participant on the dangerous reality show, “Beat the Biome!” Will you be able to survive the 5 days you are on our show? You will work collaboratively with a group of other contestants as you navigate your way through a rainforest or tundra biome. You will only have a limited amount of supplies and no communication with human civilization! In the course, students will apply their understanding of biomes to create a digital product to document their success with the integration of various thinking skills and cognitive strategies.

Will YOU be able to Beat the Biome?
