HI! I'm Bing Bong the flamigo. Yeah I know weird name. Lets get to the point! I am here to tell you the rock cycle. My mom just told me about it and I want to tell you!
Lets start at the beginning! First a rock starts as a sedimentary rock. Individual pieces of Sedimentary rocks are called sediments. A sediment turns into a sedimentary rock with compaction and cementation. When heat and pressure is added to sedimentary rocks, then the sedimentary rocks turn into a metamorphic rock.
What does cementation mean?
It means hardening!
This a example of metamorphic rock. When heat and pressure added to a sedimentary rock, the rock will turn into a metamorphic rock. When a metamorphic rock gets melted, it turns into magma.
This is magma erupting from the volcano! Magma is very hot. When magma cools and hardens, then it turns into a rock igneous rock.
