Marine Biology

Cindy Crissman
Recommended Grade Levels: 10-11 (12th welcome)

Marine Biology is an upper-level high school course requiring knowledge of general biology and assumes that students have previously participated in biological lab activities such as experiments, dissections, and microscopy.


Water covers 72% of our planet and makes up close to 99% of the living space on Earth. In this class we will journey to the farthest depths of the ocean to explore life that exists in the most unlikely places. We will learn how ocean ecology is essential to our existence. God's oceans are an amazing ecosystem full of fascinating, even bizarre creatures with cool abilities that are extremely intriguing. 


Prerequisite: Students are recommended to have completed Biology before taking this course.
