  3. 3. Three Major Types of Rocks • Sedimentary Rock: – All types of rock, minerals, and organic matter that have been broken into fragments by forces. • Wind, water, ice – Deposits harden after being compressed together.
  4. 4. Three Major Types of Rocks • Metamorphic Rock: “changed form” – When an existing rock undergoes extreme forces it changes form. • Tremendous pressure • Extreme heat • Chemical processes
  5. 5. The Rock Cycle• A cycle is a series of changes – Geological forces and processes cause rock to change from one type to another and back again. – Rocks in the crust have passes through the cycle many times.
