As I start the rock cycle, I begin as a metamorphic rock. I am deep beneath earths surface getting heated up. I am starting to melt into magma.
After melting into magma, exploding from the top of the volcano as lava, I cooled into an igneous rock. I started to see a storm coming in the distance.
As the storm rolled in and the wind and rain picked up I began to erode and turn into sediments. I realized that I was going through weathering, and tiny peices of me were going to be washed into a river with a bunch of other tiny peices of rocks.
I rushed into a river, and sunk to the bottom. I became joined by many other rocks. As I settled in I started to feel presure from all the rocks above me. I was going through compaction, and was now a sedimentary rock!
Now that I am a sedimentary rock, I am deep underground. As I sat squished, I started to get warm, and feel a lot of pressure. Soon, I realized that I was turning into a metamorphic rock. I was just warm enough to be smushed down with other rocks. We were forming layers, and were now a metamorphic rock
I made it through the rock cycle! I started off as a metamorphic rock, then an igneous rock, and last a sedimentary rock, then back to a metamorphic rock. I went through many different processes. Maybe next time I will choose a different way to go throgh the rock cycle!
