  3. 3. Tom’s Information <ul><li>A useful way to illustrate how the three main types of rock are related to one another and how change to rocks happen in a recurring sequence is the rock cycle. It can be presented in diagram like the one beside. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Nick’s Information <ul><li>James Hutton found it in 1726-1794.Rocks can change one rock to another and back again. The Rock Cycle tells us it is like a big machine. They transform by tonnes of other rocks. They come in all different shapes and sizes. Rocks are not all the same. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Indi’s Information <ul><li>What is a metamorphic rock? </li></ul><ul><li>A metamorphic rock is a rock underneath the earth. </li></ul><ul><li>What is a sedimentary rock? </li></ul><ul><li>A sedimentary rock is a rock underneath the sand in the water that has been blown off bigger rocks also known as igneous rocks. </li></ul><ul><li>What is an igneous rock? </li></ul><ul><li>An igneous rock comes out of a volcano and cools down. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Jillian’s Information The main idea is that rocks are continually changing from one type to another and back again. The rock cycle helps us to see that the earth is like a giant rock recycling machine!. So the elements that make up rocks are never created or destroyed-instead, they are constantly being recycled.
  7. 7. Bhavya ‘s Information <ul><li>Metamorphic Rock when it melts it turns into magma. When magma is cooling it turns into igneous rock. When igneous rock is melting it turns back into magma. By weather and Erosion the igneous rock turns into sediment. By compacting and cementing sediment turns into Sedimentary rock. </li></ul>
