The mighty volcano Pompeii had just experienced a hot spot and was about to erupt.
I feel very sick like I'm about to erupt!"Sniff Sniff"
Hi guys I am Mr. Cloud! and welcome to the rock cycle. As you can see we have our good friend Pompeii right here but it seems like he is about to erupt!
Suddenly Pompeii erupted spilling lava and ash all over the area.
Pompeii is erupting take cover!!
The lava from the volcano kept on going until it reached the surface.
Don't worry Pompeii it's normal. In time your lava will solidify!
Sorry! Now because of me all this magma is running down my body, what a mess!!
A few day later... The igneous rock was formed!
Where am I? Who am I?
Hi you newborn rock, I name you Ignacio. You come from a volcano a few miles away from here. You were once the lava of that same volcano but you solidified and became an igneous rock! The first type of rock in the cycle.
No! each time I'm getting smaller and smaller
As time went on the rock went through the process of weathering and erosion
Don't worry Ignacio. you're just going through puberty which we call weathering and erosion. You'll become smaller but it is part of your cycle!
The pieces of igneous rocks became sediments and due to deposition the sediments were taken to the coast
