    2. Agenda Types of Rocks Igneous Sedimentary Metamorphic

    3. Igneous Rocks “Fire Rock” Intrusive Extrusive

    4. Igneous Rocks • Granite – Intrusive rock formed slowly from pockets of magma that are trapped underground. • Pumice – Extrusive formed when lava cools quickly above ground. It is characterized by little pockets of air holes. • Scoria – Extrusive formed when lava cools quickly above ground. A kind of glass and not a mixture of minerals. • Obsidian – Extrusive formed when lava cools quickly above ground. It is actually glass and not a mineral and the edges of the rock are very sharp.

    5. Sedimentary Rocks “Rocks formed by erosion and pressure.”

    6. Sedimentary Rocks • Plant and animal matter settle in the sediment. • Pressure from the weight of the sediment creates layers of solid rock. • The rock layers are unique to sedimentary rocks. • Only rock that contains fossils. • Types: sandstone, limestone, gypsum, conglomerate, and shale.

    7. Metamorphic Rocks “Rocks altered by heat or by heat and pressure.”

    8. Metamorphic Rocks • Metamorphic rocks are sedimentary or igneous rocks that have been modified or changed in form. • Metamorphic rocks are identified by the types of minerals they contain and their texture. • These rocks make a "ching" sound instead of a "chunk" sound when tapped. • They are characterized by ribbonlike layers and may have shiny crystals. • Examples of this rock type include gneiss and marble.

    10. What geologic features do we see locally as the result of the Rock Cycle? • Erosion evidence • Sedimentary rocks • Rivers • Hills

    11. What geologic features do we NOT see as the result of the Rock Cycle? • Volcanoes • Glacier Deposits • Deserts

    12. The End
