The Life Cycle of a Sea Turtle! - Exploring Marine Biology & Ocean Animals!
In this one time class, adventurers will learn the process of a sea turtle's life cycle. We’ll study the marine biology of these animals and how these ocean reptiles grow from a ping-pong ball sized egg to a 400lb giant! Discover Zoology!

The Life Cycle of a Sea Turtle! Welcome, adventurers! Haven’t you ever wanted to dive into the sea and learn about one of the largest marine reptiles in the world? Well, grab your snorkel! In this one-time class, recommended for ages 5-8, we will discuss the life cycle of our world's beautiful sea turtles! This class is perfect for those who love ocean animals and want to expand their knowledge about the science behind one of their favorite creatures, or if you just want to hear some cool...
Students will be able to recognize the life stages of the seven species of sea turtle. They will also have a better grasp on what daily life as a sea turtle might be like, including threats, diet, habitat, and behavior! Young biologists will be engaged while learning about wildlife conservation and gain introductory insight into these themes as a whole.
I have been a sea turtle enthusiast my whole life. They may be one of my all-time favorite animals! In fact, at the beginning of my career, my first wildlife conservation trip involved dedicating a portion of my year to studying sea turtles abroad in Costa Rica. I spent weeks in the jungle doing a variety of conservation work. I was lucky enough to record sea turtle nesting surveys for multiple species of sea turtles, document and report any nest disturbances and analyze their causes, and relocate any threatened nests when needed (up to 100 eggs at a time). I even had the opportunity to evaluate injured turtles and release them when appropriate. After working as a trusted member of the team for a while, I began informing new volunteers about the processes occurring throughout this project. Throughout my entire time in Costa Rica, I accompanied biologists on field missions and other conservation projects, both research and labor-oriented, involving sea turtles and other marine life. Now I dedicate my life to educating others about turtles, concentrating my major on marine biology with the hopes of continuing this passion.
4 files available upon enrollmentAt the end of this class, we will go over a hand-illustrated review sheet, created by myself, to rediscover what we’ve learned and ensure students understand the discussed content. ~The review sheet is expected to be printed and cut accordingly before class!~ ~If the review sheet is not set up properly for the student before class, the learner will be incredibly behind and not be able to participate hands-on in the same way as the prepared students. I do not have enough allotted time within the class to guide students through cutting out the circles~ This printable will be available for free via Google Drive link once your student is officially enrolled!
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
During select portions of the lesson, we will discuss themes such as threats towards turtles in the wild. Briefly mentioning the topic of death via predators, pollution, etc. An image of an empty sea turtle shell, which washed up on the beach, will be shown. I took this photo myself and can confirm the animal died of natural causes and will represent turtle anatomy and is relevant to the lesson. No gore, decay, of any kind will be shown. Just half of a turtle shell skeleton. If you would like to preview this photo for any reason, please let me know. Once your adventurer is enrolled in the class, you will receive a link to the completely free printable within the welcome post! A parent or guardian must use a google drive account to recover the file from the link provided so that it may be printed out. Feel free to use this printable as you wish for personal use only.
