Mrs. Basalt Slate Limestone, Rock Cycle Comic

Storyboard Text

  • Originally, I was magma deep within the earth that cooled to form me. Then I was pushed up to the surface on this mountain.
  • I wonder what I will become throughout my life!
  • Suddenly: A ROCK SLIDE!
  • Hi I'm a ROCKLING named, Basalt Slate Limestone, but you can call me Salty!
  • I wonder what I will become throughout my life!

  • I, Salty, was broken into three parts: Basalt, Slate, and Limestone. Continue on to see my three very different lives! :)
  • I Basalt was surrounded by rocks that caught leaves and sticks that enclosed and protected me from rain, wind, and animal behavior that weathered me slightly over time. Over the years I have changed very little from my hard smooth youthful days.
  • I Slate was slammed into the rocky earth then covered over and over again by massive rock slides. I now have stripes from the constant high pressure. Water, animals, and wind were small factors causing me to weather a small amount.
  • I Slate was knocked off the mountain by slides, rain, wind, & animals. I have been broken apart into small pieces from flowing down the river and nocking into other rocks. I look much different now that I used to. As I settled at the bottom of the pond I reformed from tiny sand/rock particles, but I am weeker now as they are not as strongly held together. The agents of change broke me down harshly.
