But before I start the cycle all over again, I need some coffee. Because boy am I tired!
Now I've been going through the process of erosion and weathering. So I'm slowly being crushed into sediment! That means tiny pieces of rock.
So you may be wondering why I look different. Well all the sediment of me went through another process called compaction and cementation. Now I'm a sedimentary rock. One of my characteristics are my layers.
Now I'm with my buddy Roy in the dessert under extreme heat. We are under lots of pressure and we're being mushed together!
Hey! I'm Roy!
Me and Roy are now one rock! We are a metamorphic rock. One characteristic of metamorphic rocks are the mineral grains that are lined up.
Well, we fell in a volcano. It's so hot in here. Ahh! We're melting! See we are becoming lava!
