how the rock cycle works

Storyboard Text

  • Hi, I'm rockaford! Come join me as I take you on a journey through the rock cycle.
  • WoW! Did you see that explosion?!
  • I think we might fall into the ocean!
  • Hold on tight! It about be a wild ride!
  • Lets head over to the volcano!
  • It's dark down here.
  • How long are we going to be down here?
  • We begin are journey in the chambers of a volcano. As a liquid form called magma or lava. When the volcano explodes the magma flows out. As I begin to cool and harden I become and igneous rock.
  • Ouch! This hurts. I'm not comfortable. How long do I have to be down here?
  • Now I go through the first step of becoming a sedimentary rock, weathering. Weathering is when you get broken down into smaller pieces by wind, water, ice, or gravity.
  • We made it! It only took jdl but now were sedimentary rocks.
  • It's about time! Hey is it hot in here?
  • The rocks have now become sediments and are beginning the next stage in the rock cycle.
  • I've been down here for 78,000 days.
  • Smaller pieces of sediment are pressed together in a processed called compaction to form sedimentary rocks.
  • Better get use to it. I think we'll be here for awhile.
  • Now it time to become a metamorphic rock. Rockaford and friend will need to under go extreme heat and pressure.
