It was a rainy day and the twins decided it was a great day to explore the rock cycle
Hey Robert! We should go exploring the rock cycle today!
Its okay! we'll be back in no time!
That sounds fun, but its raining!
this rock used to be igneous, meaning that when a volcano erupted, the lava dried up and turned into this rock!
yes, this is called weathering, its when a rock breaks up because of the rain!
Hey look at this rock, it looks like it broke up into smaller pieces.
wow there's a volcano over there!
Hey look, there's some pieces of that rock that we say back there, but why are they here?
Its called Erosion! The pieces of the rock we just say break have been blown away!
we should look for more!
Hey look at this Sandstone! Can you guess how its made?
Easy, sandstone is a form of sedimentary rock, meaning its made from sediment and formed by the pressing down of sediment layers!
wow look at this volcano! Its about to erupt!
When it does, the lava that comes out will turn into igneous rock and the cycle will start over!
we should get going then, wouldn't want to turn into igneous rock as well!
It was so much fun learning about rocks
Yes, and look the rain has gone away!
