Are there different types of rocks?
Yes, of course! There is 3 types of rocks-Igneous, Sedimentary, and Metamorphic.
Here is what they look like and how they are made!
Igneous rocks form when magma starts cooling.
Sedimentary rocks are made of other rocks and sediment.
Metamorphic rocks are made when heat and pressure change the chemical composition the rock.
How do you Identify the three types of rocks?
- Igneous Rock: You can identify them by feeling there rough indentions and little specks of luster. You can sometimes see the red or pink spots around the dark ashy looking rock.
- Sedimentary Rock: You can identify them feeling their dusty surfaces that seem so fragile. They are usually have a worn brown or tan look to them and have other rocks inside them.
- Metamorphic Rock: You can identify them by seeing their most identifiable lines and wavy feel to them.
