Steven the rock explains his life story and how he changes into sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous rocks!

Storyboard Text

  • Who might you be?
  • Hello. My name is Steven and my goal for today is to show you humans my life story!  I've had thousands of years of experience of the rock cycle, and I still remember the first stage... 
  • What was it?
  • Believe it or not, I was once just some pieces of sediment, minding my own business until... I felt a crushing weight squeezing my sediments together!  You might call it... compaction and cementation!
  • 
  • For 200,000 years the terrible event continued, until finally... 
  • EXACTLY!!
  • The sediments were clumped together and became a sedimentary rock!
  • He lived happily  for 200,000 years as a sedimentary rock until he accidentally fell into a deep, deep hole!  Heat and pressure caused him to change yet again into... 
  • A metamorphic rock!  Eventually, though, I found an exit and returned to the surface (after about 800,000 years of looking!)
  • Yes.  I spent 400,00 years in the magma.  When I got out, I started to cool and harden.
  • Being on the surface was great again, but that exposed me to weathering and eroding-- which changed me into sediment again.  I followed the whole process again, but instead of becoming metamorphic...
  • You ended up wanting to take a bath, but accidentally went into a magma pit. Eventually you became magma , right?
  • Eventually, after many stone-still years, I became an igneous rock!  But again, I was exposed to weathering and erosion, turned back to sediment, and started the cycle again!!
  • The end. We hope you enjoyed it!
