Mrs. Stacey Faubion is our Middle School Science teacher. 




All of our Middle School Science classes participate in a Sci-Fest Competition each year.





6th Grade

Planets, Weather, Earth Composition, Forensics

Hands-on activities such as Model Rockets, Researching the Space Program, Creating and Tracking Weather Stations, Making Volcanoes, and Solve a Crime

7th Grade

Study the Five Kingdoms of Life: Bacteria, Fungi, Plants, Protists, and Animals

Unit on Heredity

Dissecting of animals such as squid, sharks, crayfish, and frogs

8th Grade

Chemistry, Physics, and Electricity

Labs in chemistry include performing chemical reactions, phase changes, balancing equations, gas laws, and acid/base properties. We also study the Periodic Table and make Atomic models.
In physics, our labs demonstrate Newton's Laws, Bernouluis Principle, and Pascal's Principle so students experience these laws as well as read about them in their text.  We also do labs to calculate speed, acceleration, and horsepower.
Our electricity unit is self-paced. Students create circuits in parallel and series as well as 2-way switches. 
8th graders also explore substances like slip and silly putty, which are polymers.  In physics, we talk about the basic concepts and model them while building and testing roller coasters.  We finish the year with physiology, learning how the body’s systems interact.  We model this with dissections of sheep brains and eyes.


And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind.” And it was so. ~Genesis 1:24
