Yea, sure. To start you off, there are three types of rock families, They are metamorphic , Igneous and Sedimentary.
Can You teach me a little bit about the rocks and the rock cycle?
Lets talk about how these rocks are formed.
I know how Sedimentary rocks are formed, sediment layers are compacted together over millions of years and they then harden and became sedimentary rocks
Igneous rocks are formed when lava cools and solidifies, there are two types of Igneous Rocks extrusive and Intrusive
And Metamorphic rocks are formed when the parent rock goes under extreme high pressure and changes.
Now that you know about rocks, time to learn about the rock cycle, It starts from either sediments of magma
If it starts from sediments, the sediments go through compaction and cementation and becomes sedimentary rock
And after that through Heat and pressure it can become metamorphic rock and with weathering and erosion it can become a sedimentary rock again.
Metamorphic rocks can also melt and become magma, and the magma can cool and become and igneous rock. And through weathering and erosion the rock can become sediments.
And the rock cycle just repeats itself.
