Rocks and minerals 02: Rocks and the rock cycle

We will be visiting Florida and it's rocks. There will be 10 stops (discussion points). We will be discussing the three main types of rocks: Igneous, Sedimentary, and Metamorphic.

The rock cycle song By: Mr.Parr
Parody of: Life is a Highway by Rascal Flatts.
We will rock you (the rock cycle)
Igneous rocks are formed the cooling of lava. Some of the igneous rocks form above ground and some form underground. The upper 16 km of the Earth's crust is composed of 95% igneous rock. Intrusive igneous rocks are formed from magma that cools and solidifies underground.
Igneous rocks!!!!!!!
These two videos are song parodies for the Rock Cycle. They should give you the gist of what the rock cycle is and which rocks are formed how, and other factors that relate to the certain rocks. Enjoy.
Florida does not have any volcanoes. There is however a place called the Wakulla Volcano.

The Wakulla Volcano was the name given to a prominent column of smoke, sometimes accompanied by bright light, seen coming from deep in the swamps of Wakulla County, Florida, from at least the Spanish occupation of Florida through 1886. The scientific assumption today is that the smoke came from a peat fire.
Sedimentary Rocks!!!!!!
Sedimentary rocks are types of rock that are formed by the deposition of material at the Earth's surface and within bodies of water. Sedimentation is the collective name for processes that cause mineral and/or organic particles (detritus) to settle and accumulate or minerals to precipitate from a solution.
A type of sedimentary rock found in Florida is Limestone.
The following map shows where limestone can be found in Florida.
!!!!!To zoom in for the details, just scroll in!!!!!
Metamorphic rocks!!!!!!
A metamorphic rock is a result of a transformation of a pre-existing rock. The original rock is subjected to very high heat and pressure, which cause obvious physical and/or chemical changes. Examples of these rock types include marble, slate, gneiss, schist.
More about metamorphic rocks:
Their uses:
Slate has been used for roofs and patios.

Marble has been used in buildings such as churches, banks, and government buildings!!!

Marble is also used in sculptures.
Metamorphic comes from the greek words meaning "change" and "form".

The Acasta gneiss rock is 3.96 billion years old.
Two Fun facts:

There are rocks all over the world! Florida contains many different rocks, and this presentation only showed little of what the rocks in Florida are all about! Many beaches around Florida contain very interesting rocks and so do some pretty cool paces like Fort lauderdale, with it's forts made out of coquina.
Fort Castillo in Flordia is made out of coquina.
