WGH Biology Students Set ‘Survivor’ Scene To Study Biomes

Students in Ashley Gammon’s biology class at Warren G. Harding High School recently recreated the TV series Survivor as part of their studies about biomes.

Like Survivor, which places participants an isolated location where they must provide food, fire and shelter for themselves, our Harding students were randomly assigned to one of 84 locations, and now, theoretically, have to “survive” in that biome for three months. They must figure out the biome they are in, consider the plants and animals they can use, and make plans for surviving within their biomes for three months. 

“They were really engaged and having a ton of fun with it,” Gammon said.  

A biome is a large area characterized by its vegetation, soil, climate, and wildlife.

There are five major types of biomes: aquatic, grassland, forest, desert, and tundra, though some of these biomes can be further divided into more specific categories.
