Hey all you rock-lovers, I'm Rick the Rock and I'm gonna tell you a story about how I became a sedimentary rock!
i'm finally a rock,
My story starts of with magma, a super hot substance that is made up of mostly molten rock and gas. Although it has the ability to get to incredibly high temperatures it is still able to cool... forming me into an intrusive igneous rock.
Boy it's hot!
With no way of escaping I stayed put in the sizzling heat and pressure coming up from the magma below. I was stuck whilst slowly being changed into a different rock, the metamorphic rock.
A few days after the big change I was dug out of the dirt, out in the open at last I was so happy to be out not knowing of what could happen next...
Rain started falling and the wind started blowing, I was in the outside world now where I wasn't always protected from the elements. This, over time eroded me and weathered me away. Turning me into sediment where I would be blown and compacted in with other sediments.
I'M SINGING IN THE RAIN JUST SINGING IN THE RAIN
Now I sit here as a sedimentary rock, waiting for the next step in the rock cycle to occur. But until then, thank you so much for listening to my story.
