Exploring Creation with Marine Biology (2nd Edition)

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Award-Winning Homeschool Marine Biology Curriculum

You can spend a year at the ocean when you choose to study a homeschool marine biology and oceanography course that teaches about marine life and ecosystems.

Apologia‘s Exploring Creation with Marine Biology, 2nd Edition, is an award-winning high school science and laboratory course for homeschool students that explores the mysteries of the oceans and the processes within them. This course is perfect for students interested in any of the disciplines within oceanography. Students will explore how a multitude of marine organisms develop, interact with one another, and adapt to their environment.

This homeschool Marine Biology course is rigorous and thorough. We recommend it as an upper-level high school course as it requires knowledge of general biology and assumes that students have previously participated in biological lab activities such as experiments, dissections, and microscopy.

A traditional high school track typically consists of biology the freshman year, chemistry during the sophomore year, physics in the junior year, and an upper-level science course such as marine biology during the senior year.

Exploring Creation with Marine Biology2nd Edition, is one of the few courses available to the homeschool community that includes marine ecology.

Dive in deep and discover the patterns of ocean circulation, plate tectonics and the geology of the seafloor, as well as the chemical and physical properties of the ocean. Study the plants and animals in the marine environment that make this water world so spectacular.

Explore the amazing life forms that live on the shorelines or deep in the ocean depths as you realize how incredible the diversity of Creation can be.

Topics covered include:

  • The Process of Life
  • Geography of the Oceans
  • Reproduction in the Sea
  • Classifying Life in the Sea
  • Kingdom Protista: The Unicellular Algae
  • Kingdom Protista: The Marine Protozoans
  • Kingdom Protista: The Multicellular Algae
  • Kingdom Monera
  • Kingdom Fungi
  • Kingdom Plantae
  • Marine Invertebrates
  • Marine Vertebrates
  • Marine Ecology
  • The Intertidal Zone
  • Estuary Communities
  • Coral Reefs
  • Continental Shelf Communities
  • The Epipelagic Zone
  • The Deep Ocean
  • Ocean Resources
  • Effects of Humans of the Sea

Upon completion of this marine biology course, your student will satisfy a full high school science credit in either marine biology or marine science, depending on the course codes in your state. Completing at least two of the three types of labs (which include experimentation, dissection, and microscopy) qualifies marine biology as a lab course. The material in this course is rigorous enough to prepare students for college-level work. This course may be listed as an advanced course on transcripts.

Like all the other Apologia high school science courses, marine biology is designed so that a student should be able to complete it in two semesters, spending about 45 minutes, five days a week, on the subject.

Components of Apologia’s Marine Biology Course for High School

The marine biology course consists of a student textbook, a Solutions and Test Manual, and a Student Notebook.

The notebook is designed with a daily schedule, note taking pages (a critical skill needed for college), space to answer all study questions found in the textbook, lab report pages to help students document and master the process of writing a complete lab report, and additional materials not found in the textbook. Because biology is a prerequisite for this course, it is assumed that the student has dissection tools and access to a microscope. Students will need to purchase the marine biology prepared slide kit and the dissection specimens for this course.

Highly recommended, yet optional, materials include the video instruction content where Sherri Seligson provides full instruction for the course and takes students on location to experience the material they are studying. The video coverage also includes every lab exercise found in the textbook. There is also an audiobook available for purchase in the Apologia online store.
