No! Why did you have to leave me! I'll save you! I'll jump into the water and find you!
Who are you? Who are you?
Wait, what is sediment?
Sediment is tiny bits of rocks. This happens from erosion. Erosion is the process of water breaking down rock. I'm guessing you're a sedimentary rock! Sedimentary rock is a rock where sediment was compacted and cemented.
Woah! What's happening?
Subduction! It's when one tectonic plate goes below another tectonic plate. The plate that is underneath the other tectonic plate goes into the mantle.
What am I now? Why is this happening to me?
Yes! Feels so good to be a big rock again. But anyways, welcome to the tectonic plates! You and I are metamorphic rocks. Metamorphic rocks are sedimentary rocks that underwent heat and pressure.
