The Ocean Book
by Frank Sherwin
80 page hardcover
Retail Price: $15.99
The oceans may well be Earth’s final frontier. These dark and sometimes mysterious waters cover 71 percent of the surface area of the globe and have yet to be fully explored, Under the waves, a watery world of frail splendor, foreboding creatures, and sights beyond imagination awaits.
• Giant squid and other “monsters” of the seas
• Centuries of ocean exploration
• Hydrothermal vents
• The ingredients that make up the ocean
• Harnessing the ocean’s energy
• Coral reefs
• Ships, submarines, and other ocean vessels
• The major ocean currents
• El Niño, whirlpools, and hurricanes
• Harvesting the oceans’ resources
• Whales, dolphins, fish, and other sea creatures
Learning about the oceans and their hidden contents can be exciting and rewarding. The abundance and diversity of life, the wealth of resources, and the simple mysteries there have intrigued explorers and scientist for centuries. A better understanding of our oceans ensures careful conservation of their grandeur and beauty for future generations, and leads to a deeper respect for the delicate balance of life on planet Earth.
The Ecology Book

Retail Price $16.99
Study the relationship between living organisms and our place in God's wondrous creation!
Learn important words and concepts from different habitats around the world to mutual symbiosis as a product of the relational character of God.
Designed with a multi-age level format especially for homeschool educational programs.
Examine influential Scientists and their work, more fully understand practical aspects of stewardship, and investigate ecological connections in creation!
The best-selling Wonders of Creation series adds a new biology-focused title that unveils the intricate nature of God's world and the harmony that was broken by sin. This educational resource is color-coded with three educational levels in mind: 5th to 6th grades, 7th to 8th grades, and 9th through 11th grades, which can be utilized for the classroom, independent study, or homeschool setting.
Whether used as part of our newly developed science curriculum or simply as a unique unit study, the book includes full-color photos, informative illustrations, and meaningful descriptions. The text encourages an understanding of a world designed, not as a series of random evolutionary accidents, but instead as a wondrous, well-designed system of life around the globe created to enrich and support one another.
Parent Lesson Planners
Parent Lesson Planners are easy-to-use with suggested daily schedules, as well as three-hole punched perforated pages so worksheets, quizzes, and tests can be easily removed before students begin their coursework.
Retail Price: $11.43 each
• Weekly Lesson Schedule
• Student Worksheets
• Quizzes and Test
• Answer Key
Features: Each suggested weekly schedule has two or three easy-to-manage lessons which combine reading, worksheets, and vocabulary-building opportunities including an expanded glossary for each book. Designed to allow your student to be independent, materials in this resource are divided by section so you can remove quizzes, tests, and answer keys before beginning the coursework. As always, you are encouraged to adjust the schedule and materials needed to in order to best work within your educational program.
Workflow: Students will read the pages in their book and then complete each section of the PLP. They should be encouraged to complete as many of the activities and projects as possible as well. Tests are given at regular intervals with space to record each grade. If used with younger students, they may be given the option of only choosing activities or projects of interest to them and taking open book tests.
Lesson Scheduling: Space is given for assignment dates. There is flexibility in scheduling. For example, the parent may opt for a M–W schedule rather than a M, W, F schedule. Each week listed has five days but due to vacations the school work week may not be M–F. Adapt the days to your school schedule. As the student completes each assignment, he/she should put an “X” in the box.
Calculating Credits: This course should take between 60 to 90 hours to complete, depending on any additional hours spent on added research, essay writing assignments, or suggested lab work, if assigned. Elective courses that take 60 hours are commonly assigned ½ credit, while those 120 hours or more are assigned a full credit; core courses require over 150 hours for a credit. Based on whether this is being used as a core or elective course, make your final credits calculation based on the total hours of coursework completed in the year.
Intro to Oceanography & Ecology
1 Year Science
This is the suggested course sequence that allows one core area of science to be studied per semester. You can change the sequence of the semesters per the needs or interests of your student; materials for each semester are independent of one another to allow flexibility.
Semester 1: Oceans
The oceans may well be earth’s final frontier. These dark and sometimes mysterious waters cover 71 percent of the surface area of the globe and have yet to be fully explored. Under the waves, a watery world of frail splendor, foreboding creatures, and sights beyond imagination awaits.
The Ocean Book will teach you about giant squid and other “monsters” of the seas; centuries of ocean exploration; hydrothermal vents; the ingredients that make up the ocean; harnessing the oceans’ energy; icebergs; coral reefs; ships, submarines, and other ocean vessels; the major ocean currents; El Niño; whirlpools and hurricanes; harvesting the ocean’s resources; whales, dolphins, fish, and other sea creatures. Learning about the oceans and their hidden contents can be exciting and rewarding.

Semester 2: Ecology
Study the relationship between living organisms and our place in God’s wondrous creation! Learn important words and concepts from different habitats around the world to mutual symbiosis as a product of the relational character of God. This is a powerful biology-focused course specially designed for multi-age teaching. Students will:
• Study the intricate relationship between living organisms and our place in God’s wondrous creation
• Examine important words and concepts, from different habitats around the world to our stewardship of the world’s resources
• Gain insight into influential scientists and their work
• More fully understand practical aspects of stewardship
• Investigate ecological interactions and connections in creation
The Ecology Book encourages an understanding of a world designed, not as a series of random evolutionary accidents, but instead as a wondrous, well-designed system of life around the globe created to enrich and support its different features. Activities provide additional ways to make the learning experience practical.
Creation Biology is the study of biological processes and organisms, while operating under the assumption that God created life on Earth. The discipline is premised on the idea that God created a finite number of discrete created kinds or baramin. While these forms of life have the ability to vary and even undergo speciation, they cannot arise spontaneously from non-life, cannot interbreed outside of their kind, and cannot increase in genetic complexity.
Biblical creation science educational curriculum for Christian schools, homeschools, and Sunday schools developed by scientists and educators from ministries such as Answers in Genesis, the Institute for Creation Research, Creation Research Society, and Creation Ministries International.
