Apologia resources are designed to give homeschooled students a scientific education that will help them make a reasoned defense of the Christian faith. Written by a former university professor, the entire curriculum is also devoted to preparing junior high and high school students for college-level science courses. Rather than offering rigid daily lessons, each Apologia subject presents the necessary information while allowing the student the flexibility to advance at his own pace.
In order to take Exploring Creation with Marine Biology, students must have completed a first-year biology course, preferably Exploring Creation With Biology. This course concentrates on marine wildlife and marine habitats. It provides a survey of members of each biological kingdom that live in marine environments. The student will learn about the microscopic organisms that make life in the ocean possible, including details about their interesting habits and life cycles. The student will also learn about the anatomy of many macroscopic marine creatures such as clams, starfish, and sharks. The student will then learn how these creatures and their physical surroundings form marine ecosystems such as intertidal zones, estuaries, coral reefs, continental shelf communities, epipelagic communities, and deep-ocean communities. The course ends with a study of marine resources and our relationship with the sea. This course contains many experiments, some of which require microscope equipment, while others require dissection equipment.
