  1. Liz LaRosa 5th Grade Science http://www.middleschoolscience.com 2009 Rock Cycle – Color and Label

  2. Rock Cycle – Follow along on your worksheet. Be sure to color and label as indicated.

  3. Magma – rock that has melted under intense heat and pressure Magma Melting Melting

  4. Igneous Rock – magma or lava has cooled and solidified Igneous Rock Cooling

  5. Igneous, Sedimentary, and Metamorphic Rock is worn down by weathering and erosion, forming sediments. Weathering & Erosion Sediments Weathering & Erosion Weathering & Erosion

  6. Compaction – sediments form layers over time, and the layers are pressed and cemented together. Compaction

  7. Sedimentary Rock – sediments that have compacted over time, may contain organic matter and fossils, too. Sedimentary Rock

  8. Metamorphic Rock – heat and pressure changes the rock. Heat & Pressure Metamorphic Rock Heat & Pressure

  9. The cycle continues……

  10. Discussion Questions 1. From where do rocks come? 2. Why would it be helpful to find a rock that is a million years old? 3. How is an igneous rock made? 4. What is in magma that makes up a rock? 5. How are sedimentary rocks made? 6. What happens in Earth that creates mountains? 7. How does the formation of mountains help more rocks to be made? 8. What does the word metamorphosis mean? 9. Can you think of examples of metamorphosis? 10. As what kind of rock does a metamorphic rock start? 11. Do rocks change over time? Explain. 12. Do you think rocks will be formed for many years to come? Explain. 13. What is an example of a rock cycle?
