Rock Formations: Sedimentary Rock

Storyboard Description

For Science Class

Storyboard Text

  • Wow look at those fluffy clouds!
  • Pfft, stop overthinking! We've lived for millions of years, what could go wrong?
  • Hmm, is it just me, or are those clouds getting darker? Uh oh...
  • AHH IT'S RAINING! IT'S RAINING! WAIT WHAT'S THAT BLUE THING COMING RIGHT AT US!?
  • IT'S A WAVE! WE'RE GONNA GET WASHED AWAY! WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!
  • BUMP!
  • OW! QUIT IT!
  • I'm you but smaller...
  • OW! WHO ARE YOU!?
  • This takes place on Devil's Rock. Igneous rocks are rock formations created by magma (which is from the mantle). It's been any other day on the mountains for these rock family members, but they don't know what's coming...
  • AH! GIVE ME SOME PERSONAL SPACE ALREADY!
  • GO STICK ON SOME OTHER ROCK! WHAT'S DOING THIS TO US!?
  • HEY IT'S NOT MY FAULT IM STICKING ON YOU! 
  • The process of weathering is about to occur. Weathering happens when energy from the sun allows wind and water to break down rock formations into smaller pieces.
  • I miss our other family members on Devil's Rock. 
  • *sighs* We've rebirthed into sedimentary rock...
  • Weathering results in these igneous rocks to break down into smaller pieces, resulting in sediment later on. 
  • Compaction happens when these sediment pieces get pressed down together while cementation allows minerals from the water to glue sediment together into rock.
  • (*minerals in the water*) - Beats me.. 😏
  • After millions of years of compaction, cementation AND erosion these "previous" igneous rocks are now sedimentary rocks, which created the land around Devil's Rock. The End.
  • My Opinion of Storyboard That: Honestly, it was pretty difficult to work with everything. I was going to add a funny piece in the end, but there were no expressions for the people, just them smiling emotionlessly. I tried. 😅
