The rock cycle

Look beneath the rocks

What is the rock cycle?

The rock cycle is a cycle that describes the three different rocks( Metamorphic, Igneous, and sedimentary) and how they form.

How do they come to be?

Metamorphic - by heating and cooling different types of rocks

Sedimentary - the pressing and pressure of small rock becoming as one

Igneous - magma that is cooling down

Example Rocks

Igneous- Pumice~ is light and porous.

Metamorphic- Slate~ is a fine grated metamorphic rock

Sedimentary- Sandstone~ it is sand grains cemented together.
