    Rock Cycle Vocabulary Rock Cycle Vocabulary Presentation Transcript

    • Rock Cycle Vocabulary
    • Rock
      • a mixture of one or more minerals, volcanic glass, organic matter, or other materials
    • Sedimentary Rock
      • forms when sediments are compacted and cemented together or when minerals are left behind by evaporation
    • Examples
    • Metamorphic Rock
      • forms when heat and pressure act on igneous, metamorphic or sedimentary rock and change its form or make up .
    • Examples
    • Igneous Rock
      • intrusive or extrusive rock formed when hot magma cools and hardens
    • Examples
    • Rock Cycle
      • model that describes how rocks slowly change from one form to another through time
    • Example
    • Sediments
      • loose materials such as rock fragments, dirt, silt, and sand
    • Magma
      • hot, melted rock material beneath the Earth’s surface
    • Weathering
      • surface process that breaks rocks into smaller pieces (wind, rain, temperature, etc)
    • Erosion
      • process in which surface materials (sediments) are worn away and transported from one place to another by water, wind, and glaciers
    • Deposition
      • The process of eroded materials being moved and deposited in another place.
    • Cementation
      • sedimentary rock-forming process in which large sediments are held together by natural cements (matrix) like evaporated mud
    • Compaction
      • process that forms sedimentary rocks when layers of small sediments are compressed by the weight of the layers above
