Storyboard Text

  • An Igneous rock forms by the cooling of molten magma on Earth's surface.
  • Igneous Rock
  • Weathering
  • Erosion
  • Cooling
  • Magma
  • Sedimentary Rock  
  • Metamorphic Rock
  •   Melting
  • High Temperatures and Pressure
  • An metamorphic rock is created by the physical or chemical alteration by heat and pressure of an igneous or sedimentary material into a denser form
  • Sedimentary rocks use heating, heat, pressure, and magma to form into an metamorphic rock .
  • Granite, a igneous rock, metamorphoses into gneiss.
  • Limestone, a sedimentary rock, metamorphoses into marble 
  • An sedimentary rock is formed when the sediment is deposited in air, ice, wind, gravity, or water flows the particles in suspicion. The sediment is often formed when weathering and erosion break down a rock into a loose material. 
  • all three (Igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary) can be composed of minerals.
  • All rocks can be composed (over geologic time) into another type of rock
  • Metamorphic rocks forms when heat or pressure causes older rocks to change into new types of rocks.
