~ The Rock Cycle ~ By: S.R.
Hi! I'm Metamorphic Rock! I'm going to be leading your tour today... of the Rock Cycle!
Before I can tell you how I was formed, I'm going to have to introduce you to some other rocks
These are some Igneous Rocks. They are some of the most common rocks on Earth.
Hi! I'm an Extrusive Igneous Rock. I was formed when magma from this volcano cooled so quickly that I was left with a smooth texture!
Hi! I'm an Intrusive Igneous Rock. I formed when magma from this volcano cooled really slowly so I have a rough texture.
This is Sedimentary Rock. Let's listen to how he was formed.
I was formed when rocks like Metamorphic Rock here and the Extrusive/Intrusive Igneous Rocks were put under intense pressure and heat. That's why I have this bumpy, pebble-like texture. Here's the funny thing! With a bit of heat and pressure, I can become metamorphic!
This last place is the last stop of the tour. This is probably a rock's worst nightmare...
Fun Fact: All three of us main types of rocks can slowly become each other. For example, if I melt into lava and then I cool, I can become an igneous rock. If I'm crushed or if I weather away, I can become sedimentary if I am cemented together with different stones! In fact, with just a little bit of heat and pressure, igneous rock can turn into one of us metamorphic rocks!
The Inside of a VOLCANO. This is where we were melted and where some of us came into existence.
