science comic strip about the life cycle of a rock
Hi! I'm Maggie and I'm magma! This is the story of my life... I have lived in a volcano for all of my life and its kind of like a prison, no outside world to explore . But then, one day...
My volcano erupted and I was set free into the world, flowing away from my prison onto the soil of Earth!!
After flowing for what seemed like an eternity, I cooled off and became a whole other rock..an igneous one! I was so excited to get started with my new rock identity, when it was ruined by something horrible called a hurricane..
I blew away and broke down really badly into my new form of sediment... this is one of the worst forms that I took. I ended up at a rock hospital at the beach, which was a new experience. However, I did get to meet my best friend Meta, who turned into sediment from a metamorphic rock. We were by each other's side for a long while after that!
For a long time, wind caused sand to blow over me and push me down into the earth. During this time, I tragically lost Meta in the dirt and made my way down to the center of the Earth. I was put under a lot of pressure, which made me compact and become a sedimentary rock... all of my sediments came together to become one rock! It kinda hurt...
Long story short, I made my way back to the Sediment Beach and lived the rest of my life on the beach, peacefully sipping pina coladas everyday! Hope you liked my story and can relate to how my life turned out! :-)
