Rocks

 

  1. Igneous rock – rock that forms when melted, or molten, rock from deep below Earth’s surface cools and hardens.
  2. Metamorphic rock  - new rock that forms when existing rocks are changed by heat, pressure, or chemicals beneath Earth’s surface.
  3. Rock  - a solid material made up of one or more minerals.
  4. Sediment –sand, particles of rock, bits of soil, and remains of once-living things.
  5. Sedimentary rock – rock that forms when sand, particles of rock, bits of soil, and bits of once-living things are pressed together and harden.

 

Three Kinds of Rocks

 

Igneous Rock
Igneous rock is any rock made by the cooling of magma or lava. Magma is molten material that flows under the earth's crust. Sometimes it finds a weak spot and breaks through to form great areas of rock called flood basalts, or it may erupt as a volcano. Besides basalt, examples of igneous rock are granite and obsidian. Igneous rocks come with or without observable crystals that are not in layers or with or without air holes or glasslike.

Sedimentary Rock
Sedimentary is gravel, sand, clay, or soil that settles out of water in riverbeds, ponds, lakes, and oceans. Sediment may contain shells and skeletons. Sedimentary rock is formed in layers, like a giant cake, after sediment has been under great pressure for millions of years. If the sediment was originally sand, it becomes sandstone. Clay turns into shale. Shells and skeletons make limestone. Small pebbles and sand form conglomerate. Sedimentary rocks are rounded-appearing mineral and rock particles that are cemented together.

Metamorphic Rock
Metamorphic rock has been through a process much like baking. (Meta means changed, and mophic means form.) The change is caused by intense heat and great pressure deep in the earth. Under these conditions, sedimentary limestone becomes marble. Sedimentary sandstone turns into quartzite. Igneous granite changes into gneiss (pronounced "nice". Metamorphic rocks are crystals/minerals, often in layers.
