  3. 3. Forming Igneous Rocks
  4. 4. Types of Igneous Rock • There are two types of igneous rock: Extrusive, which forms from lava that hardens on Earth’s surface. Intrusive, which forms from magma that hardens beneath Earth’s surface.

  10. 10. Sedimentary Rock - layers
  11. 11. Types of Sedimentary Rock • There are three types of sedimentary rock: Clastic, which is formed when rock fragments are squeezed together. Organic, which forms when the remains of plants and animals are deposited in thick layers. Chemical, which forms when minerals that are dissolved in a solution crystallize.
  12. 12. Sedimentary Rock
  13. 13. Metamorphic Rock Metamorphic rock is any rock that has gone under immense heat and pressure to transform into another rock.
