Rock Cycle

Rock Cycle

Storyboard Text

  • Sup Dude! I'm chad the rock & I'm gonna explain the rock cycle B). First of all, there are 3 types of rocks which are igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic.
  • Once magma hardens, it turns into igneous rock . It's usually found near volcanoes. They are made by increase in temperature in rock deep below the surface of Earth. This is caused by friction between crustal plates.
  • Dudeeee! I'm Ian the igneous rock and my friend here is crystal and she's a crystal.. I think-
  • Supposed to be a crystal but looks weird-
  • Igneous rocks turn into sediment because of weathering and erosion. Weathering is when rocks break down or dissolve of rocks and minerals on Earths surface.
  • Aww man I'm in the back.. Wait for meeeee!!!!
  • Erosion is where natural forces like water, wind, ice, and gravity transport sediments
  • There's sand in my mouth!! >_<Wait joe- come back!
  • After the rocks turn into sediment, because of deposition the process of cementation, which is when new materials stick together just like cement which holds the grains together tightly, and the process of compaction, which is when sediments are deeply buried, placing them under pressure because of the weight of overlying layers, turn the rocks into a sedimentary rock.
  • Joe
  • Once again rocks turn into sediment through weathering and erosion
  • Stop looking at me! It's too much pressure (if you understand the joke..)
  • The sediment gets buried deep within the Earth's crust and turns into a metamorphic rock because of heat and pressure
  • Finally, because of melting and cooling, rocks melt back into magma and cool back into an igneous rock. And the whole entire cycle starts again..
  • Here we go again..
