Hi friends my name is Rocky and you will follow me through my rock cycle. First I started out at the river as silt, but one day the currents in the water washed me into the ocean.
Over time as I was in water I became sand, but my home in the ocean wasn't permanent. I got washed a shore as I was just another pebble of sand on the beach.
*OUCH* that was a rough trip.
Over a LONG time I got buried under many layers of sand and the pressure pushed me deep into the Earth's interior.
Then the tectonic plates pushed me upward. Over millions of years of tectonic plate movement and compaction I became a rock on the side of a mountain.
When the ice on top the mountain melted layers of rock washed away and were carried down through the mountain and to the river.
Thank you friends for following me through my rock cycle!!
That rough trip down the mountain banged me up quit a bit, causing me to break down and become sediment once again.
