The Rock Cycle Rock Cycle Song! Igneous Sedimentary Metamorphic Heat and Pressure Sediment Magma Melting Weathering and Erosion Cooling Compacting and Cementing Weathering and Erosion Weathering and Erosion Heat and Pressure Melting Heat and Pressure can change igneous rocks into metamorphic rocks The rock has the same composition, but the pressure causes the minerals to line up, giving the rocks a banded appearance IGNEOUS METAMORPHIC Naturally occurring material that has been broken down by processes of weathering and erosion. Metamorphic rock is formed with heat and pressure Heat and Pressure can change sedimentary rocks into metamorphic rocks Sedimentary Rocks are formed when sediments are transported and deposited in a different place, then compacted and cemented After the sediments are transported and deposited, they may be compacted and cemented to form sedimentary rocks Weathering is the process by which rocks are broken down Waves Gravity Ice Wind Erosion is the movement of broken down rocks (sediments) by agents such as wind and water Accumulated sediment is pressed together to form sedimentary rock Igneous Rock is formed by the cooling and hardening of magma Igneous rock can melt back into magma Magma erupts from a volcano and cools quickly on the earth's surface to form extrusive igneous rock Magma can also cool slowly underneath the earth's surface to form intrusive igneous rock Metamorphic rock turns into magma Magma is hot, liquid rock found deep inside the earth Sedimentary Metamorphic Clay Shale Silt Siltstone SEDIMENT SEDIMENTARY ROCK Sand Sandstone Conglomerate Gravel SEDIMENT SEDIMENTARY ROCK Rain Sediments are little pieces of rocks that help build up to a Sedimentary Rock Once magma reaches Earth's surface lava is formed
