Hi! I am Tim, a scientist who studies ROCKS!! I am conducting an experiment where I will turn into each of the different types of rocks. First, I am an intrusive rock. I have been alive for 1,000,000 years. I remain buried in the Earth's surface.
As you see behind me, I am now sediment. I have been sediment for 1,000 years. Erosion has broken me off from the rest of the rock. I have now been alive for 1,001,000 years.
I am magma now, and have been for 10,000 years. I have been exposed to magma and I melt. I have been alive for 1,011,000 years.
Hi guys!! I have been magma for 10,010,000 years. It's starting to get really hot up here! The rock above me is too thick to break through, so I've been stuck!! I have now been alive for 11,011,000 years.
I am now an extrusive igneous rock and I have been for 100,000 years. I exploded out of the volcano and cool quickly. Brrrr!! I am now 11,111,000 years old.
Now I am magma... again. I have been magma for 10,000 years. I explode from the source of the magma and melt. I am now 11,200,000 years. Now that I have concluded my experiment, I'm getting down from here!!
