Storyboard Text

  • Sedimentary, Igneous, & Metamorphic!
  • There are 3 main types of rocks.
  • Sedimentary
  • Sedimentary is made from sediment (loose material such as bits of rock, minerals, and plant & animal remains.
  • Just like the big canyon behind me!
  • Igneous rock is formed when hot magma or lava cools and solidifies.
  • Igneous
  • You can find igneous rocks on volcanoes because they are a common place for them to be formed!
  • Caves are right under the Earths surface so you could find a Metamorphic rock down here!
  • Metamorphic rock is formed below Earths surface when extremely high pressure and heat cause the original rock, to change form.
  • Metamorphic
