Storyboard Text

  • Look a rock! I think it's pumice!
  • It must be! Pumice is igneous. Look there's the volcano once the magma cools and hardens when pice of it comes off, it igneous rock.
  • Come on lets go. I see water!
  • Can't rock erode or be affected by weathering then turn into sediment?
  • Yep! It builds up downstream and forms new rock.
  • There's downstream. Let's go see!
  • When part of the rock is chipped off, you can see the layers of sediment. Shale is sedimentary.
  • Rock builds up and gets bonded together by its own weight to forn sedimentary rocks.
  • We learned a lot about rocks today.
  • Yep! Igneous and sedimentary! But isn't there one more?
  • Metamorphic! Lets go see.
  • For a rock to become metamorphic, it needs heat and pressure. The farther underground it is,  the more pressure is applied to the existing rock. Earth's core can provide the heat. 
  • Yea! It's been a long day! Lets go get food. A cheeseburger sounds good.
  • Wow! We learn a lot about rocks! Igneous from magma and lava, sedimentary from sediments and metamorphic from heat and pressure!
  • mmm sounds great let's go!
