W.A.L.T: Sequence the Rock Cycle

Choose a partner to work with and then decide on an app to show how rocks are made in a Rock Cycle.

Design a rock cycle showing how the 3 types of rocks are made and then label your diagram using these labels in the correct places. You can also make your own labels if you decide to.

Magma ( hot melted rock), deep under ground cools down and crystallises making igneous rock.

Igneous rock erodes by wind, water or other forces into sediment ( small particles of rock). These small particles are deposited in layers which eventually become sedimentary rock. 

Some sedimentary rock is pushed deep under ground, where they are exposed to heat and pressure transforming them into metamorphic rock. 

Check on the blog for examples of the Rock Cycle.
