FC: The Rock Cycle By:Ryan Gibson | Igneous | Sedimentary | Metamorphic

1: All three rocks can be changed to another in some way. Keep reading to learn more. | Cover Image URL: http://www.cotf.edu/ete/modules/msese/earthsysflr/rock.html Search Terms: Rock Cycle Images

2: Igneous Rocks are formed from cooled and hardened magma | Igneous | Examples of Igneous Rocks: Basalt Granite Obsidian Pumice

3: Igneous rocks can be transformed into sedimentary rocks by weathering and erosion. Heat and pressure can change them into metamorphic rocks. | Image URL's: http://sciencealtavista.files.wordpress.com/2010/02/geology-igneous-rocks1.jpg http://geology.com/rocks/igneous-rocks.shtml Image Search Terms: Igneous Rock Images | Granite | Obsidian

4: Sedimentary Rocks are formed when weathered pieces of other rocks are deposited in layers by moving water or wind and then the layers are compressed over a long time | Examples of Sedimentary Rocks: Coal LImestone Iron Ore Shale | Coal

5: Sedimentary rocks can be transformed into igneous rocks by undergoing melting and solidification. Heat and pressure can change sedimentary rocks into metamorphic rocks. | Images URL: http://geology.com/rocks/sedimentary-rocks.shtml Image Search Terms: Sedimentary Rock Images | Limestone | Shale

6: Metamorphic Rocks are formed when sedimentary and igneous rocks are changed by extreme heat and pressure or chemical processes. These changes usually happen deep in the earth. | Examples of Metamorphic Rocks: | Gneiss | Marble

7: Metamorphic rocks can be changed to sedimentary rocks by weathering and erosion and to igneous rocks through melting and solidification. | Image URL: http://geology.com/rocks/metamorphic-rocks.shtml Image Search Terms: Metamorphic Rock Images | Schist | Slate
