Ed551 The Rock Cycle Ed551 The Rock Cycle Presentation Transcript

  • The Rock Cycle: Igneous, Sedimentary, and Metamorphic Rocks By: Ms. Mayberry
  • What is a Rock? A rock is made up  of one or more minerals. There are 3 types  of rocks.
  • What are the 3 types of Rocks? The 3 types of  rocks are: – Igneous rocks – Sedimentary rocks – Metamorphic rocks
  • Igneous Rocks Igneous rocks are  formed from magma or lava. They form when   the magma or lava cools.
  • Examples of Igneous Rocks  Feldspars   Quartz   Olivine 
  • Sedimentary Rocks Sedimentary rocks  are formed in layers from the build up of sediments.  They form when  erosion occurs from rivers, streams, and other elements.
  • Examples of Sedimentary Rocks  Breccia   Sandstone   Shale 
  • Metamorphic Rocks Metamorphic rocks  are formed from older “parent” rock.  They form when  the “parent rock” is under intense heat and pressure.
  • Examples of Metamorphic Rocks  Slate   Schist   Gneiss 
  • The Rock Cycle The Rock Cycle is the relationship between  the 3 rock types.
  • Review Igneous rocks are   formed from cooled lava.  Sedimentary rocks  are formed from erosion.  Metamorphic rocks  are formed from heat and pressure.
  • Links What Type of Rock do I Have:  How to tell an igneous rock from a sedimentary rock from a metamorphic rock.  The Rock Cycle: Learn more about the rock cycle, play a game, write a story, and more!
