FC: James's Rock Cycle Book

1: Rocks | A rock is a inorganic, naturally occurring substance made entirely of minerals

2: Sedimentary Rock | Sedimentary rock is a type of rock that forms when pieces of rock are eroded and moved by rain or other natural occurring weather. Then the pieces fall into lakes and are smashed together creating layers overtime. There is also another way to make a sedimentary rock. You can have a sedimentary chemically formed with crystals. These sedimentary rocks are usually made of organic living things such as fossils, plants and soil.

3: The first way I suggested of making sedimentary rocks is how you make clastic sedimentary rocks and the second way I suggested is how you make organic sedimentary rocks. Three examples of sedimentary rocks are sandstone, limestone and shale. This is the basic information of sedimentary rocks | Here are some examples of sedimentary rock | sandstone | limestone | conglomerate

4: Metamorphic Rock | unlike sedimentary rocks there is only one way of making metamorphic rocks. The way is that rock underground goes under pressure and heat and eventually changes into a different rock. Metamorphic rock can also have layers though Three examples of metamorphic rock are schist, gneiss and slate. If metamorphic rocks have right angles and have layers they are called foliated metamorphic rocks. if they do not they are called non foliated metamorphic rocks. Thats simple isn't it?

5: Gneiss | Schist | Slate | These are some examples of metamorphic rocks.

6: Igneous rocks Igneous rocks are pretty interesting. They form when lava cools from either it shooting from a volcano and cooling outside or it staying in deep underground pockets and cooling there. The ones that cool outside are called extrusive igneous rocks and the ones that cool inside are called intrusive igneous rocks. Igneous rocks come mostly from volcano's.

7: Obsidian | Scoria | Granite | Here are some examples of igneous rock.

8: The Rock Cycle | The rock cycle is a cycle in which rocks can change into other rocks. In the rock cycle there are three types of rocks. Sedimentary rock, Metamorphic rock and Igneous rock are those three.
