BC: "Don't cry because it's over, Smile because it happened." - Dr Seuss

3: " being deeply loved by someone gives you strength; loving someone deeply gives you courage." - loa tzu | Igneous Rocks -Formed from magma or molten rock; then it cools and hardens. How it's transformed to Metamorphic: Igneous rocks change temperature and pressure. How it's transformed to Sedimentary: Igneous rocks change by erosion, deposition, and cementation. Examples: Andesite,Granite, Dacite, Lava, Pumice, Obsidian, & Rhyolite.

4: Sedimentary Rock - They are formed when sediment deposits are compressed, cemented together & hardened. How it's transformed to Igneous: Transformed by melting and cooling. How it's transformed to Metamorphic: Transformed by changing the temperature and the pressure Examples: Breccia, Sandstone, & Shale

5: the more you laugh the longer you live

7: Metamorphic Rock - Is formed when an existing rock is altered by pressure, extreme heat, & chemical processes. How it's transformed to Igneous: Transformed by melting or cooling. How it's transformed to Sedimentary: Transformed by erosion, deposition,, and cementation. Example: Marble, Slate, & Gneiss

8: Silicate Minerals - They're made up of Silicon && Oxygen. -All silicate minerals are in crystal form. - Silicate Minerals make up 96% of Earth's crust. Examples: Quartz & Mica

11: Non-Silicate Minerals -They are organized into six groups: Carbonates, Halides, Native elements, Oxides, Sulfates, & Sulfides. -Non-Silicate Minerals are minerals that do not contain compounds of silicon and oxygen. -These minerals make up the other 4 % of earths crust. Examples: Dolomite, Fluorite, & Copper.

12: home of the free because of our brave

13: independence day | Solidification of a melt: How it occurs: when heat energy is added to rocks, causing the atoms in the constituent minerals to break their bonds and begin to move freely.

14: "A prefect summer day is when the sun is shinning, the breeze is blowing,...

15: ...the birds are singing and the lawn mower is broken." - James Dent | Precipitation from solution:When the reaction occurs in a liquid, the solid formed is called the precipitate, or when compacted by a centrifuge, a pellet. The liquid remaining above the solid is in either case called the supernate or supernatant.

17: sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart | Solidstate Diffusion: How it occurs: Heating the wafer at a high temperature in an atmosphere containing dopant atoms causes some of the atoms to be incorporated into the top surface of the water

18: today you can be anything you imagine

21: "An open home, an open heart, here grows a bountiful harvest." - Judy Hand

23: Home is where there's someone to love, and someone to love us.

25: "Write it on your heart that every day is the best day of the year." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
