We will explore all marine organisms from the shores to the trenches. As well as cover marine habitats, their physical and behavioral characteristics, and adaptation they have to live in their marine environment. So if you’re crazy about coral or love lobsters, then sign up for Dive Deep! Calling All Marine Biologists to Be!
This is an interactive, hands on class. Students will be required to read, take notes, make and apply concepts discussed in class with unit projects. Each unit project allows students to dive deep in to their understanding of marine ecology, animal adaptations, marine invertebrates and marine vertebrates.

If your child is interested in crimes, the “who’s done it” and why, this this class is a go!!
My daughter loves the Forensics class taught by Mrs. Pope.. She even has the textbook that Mrs. Pope is using in the classroom even though all the lessons are provided in the CANVAS because she wanted to read everything Mrs. Pope does. In fact, this is the third class that Mrs. Pope has taught her! Mrs. Pope continue to provide engaging lessons that make her thinks and process the mysteries and crimes. She even points out “mistakes” in a TV crime series we watch when they are investigating the crime scenes . Mrs. Pope provides hands on math and science into the lab experiments that help reinforcing what is being taught in the lessons.
So, that's where they live!!!
After taking the Dig Deep Marine Biology course, my daughter wanted to take more ocean related classes.. She was so thrilled to find out she could take Big Blue with Mrs. Pope. Mrs. Pope continued to do a wonderful job providing hands on projects that expanded her knowledge and love more marine biology life. If you have a child who is interested in how the ocean works or wants to get into a marine field, this class is great to take!
Dive right into this!
This was the first interactive online class our daughter took with Mrs. Pope and she wound up hooked! She was ready for class early every week and was even upset when a “vacation day” happened because she so wanted to be in class.
The most memorable piece was how this class was able to be taught anywhere. On dissection day, our family had an emergency and one of my friends offered to allow my daughter to bring all of her dissection materials to her home so the class wouldn’t be missed. Her three sons heard about what was being dissected and observed the class and started asking questions themselves. It’s amazing how one’s love of a class can become contagious! Thank you, OTA, for making classes be taught anywhere!
My daughter has really enjoyed this class taught by Ms. Sarah. It is an engaging and creative class, filled with conservation, ecology and building a better earth/world. It has given my conservation minded daughter more information to grow with and ways to make things better for those around her. Ms. Sarah is truly a wonderful, fun, energetic, and knowledgeable teacher. She enjoys teaching and her passion for science is just wonderful.
My son loves the Forensics class taught by Ms. Sarah. He is fully engaged in the class and has learning so much from it. He enjoys the hands on activities and “solving” the mysteries/crimes. It is great to see him get excited about a class. Ms. Sarah is truly a great teacher. She is super easy to talk to and loves receiving questions. She has an energy that is just wonderful for this age!
