Rock cycle

  1. 2. Igneous Rocks <ul><li>Made of cooled molten material </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Magma: molten material located INSIDE the earth </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lava: molten material located OUTSIDE the earth </li></ul></ul>
  2. 3. Igneous Rock Types <ul><li>Extrusive </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Formed OUTSIDE the earth </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Mineral grains/crystals are SMALL </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Molten material cools quickly </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Intrusive </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Formed INSIDE the earth </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Mineral grains/crystals are LARGE </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Molten material cools slowly </li></ul></ul></ul>
  3. 4. Metamorphic Rocks <ul><li>Created inside the earth through HEAT and pressure </li></ul><ul><li>Mineral grains are flat and aligned </li></ul><ul><li>All rocks (sedimentary, igneous and/or metamorphic) can become metamorphic rocks under the right conditions </li></ul>
