2 While You ReadIgneous Rocks: formed by cooling and hardening of magma.Sedimentary Rocks: formed when sediment compacts and cements together.Metamorphic Rocks: formed when heat and pressure change other rocks.
3 6.1 After You ReadList as many natural forces contributing to the rock cycle as you can.Heat/pressure; melting,Solidification from cooling;weathering and erosion;burial and compaction
4 6.1 After You ReadExplain why the rock cycle is complex and variable. Give an example.The rock cycle can take many shortcuts past some steps or can retrace steps. For example, a sedimentary rock may melt directly into magma without passing through a metamorphic stage.
6 6.2 After You ReadChoose a mineral discussed in the section. Use the organizer you made while reading to classify the mineral. Describe the mineral’s chemical and physical properties.Basalt is a mafic rock. It hardens at the surface from lava flows. Basalt is fine-grained and belongs to the gabbro family.
7 6.3 Sedimentary Rocks While You Read FeatureOrganicChemicalClastic1. Forms fromfragments of other rocksX2. Forms from sediments of plant and animal remains3. Fossils4. Stratification5. Ripple marks may be present
8 6.3 After You Read1. List and describe the three types of clastic sedimentary rocks.Conglomerate rocks are made of large fragments loosely bound into a coarse rock.Sandstone rocks are made of small quartz sand grains, with a lot of air space around them.Shale rocks are made of tiny fragments of densly packed clay minerals.
9 6.3 After You Read2. Explain the origin of nodules, concretions, and geodes.Nodules and concretions result when minerals gather around a fragment or other impurity. Geodes may form when minerals concentrate in cavities left by groundwater.
10 6.4 Metamorphic Rocks While You Read 1. Metamorphic process: Rock’s characteristics are changed by heat and pressure from Earth’s internal layers, the weight of other rocks, or rock deformation during mountain building.
11 6.4 Metamorphic Rocks While You Read 2. Local metamorphism occurs in small, distinct areas.3. Hot magma heats and changes existing rock coming in contact with it.4. Deformations occur as high pressure from stress of friction changes the shape of rocks.
12 6.4 Metamorphic Rocks While You Read 5. Regional metamorphism occurs as large areas change when pressure of mountain building compacts rocks and pushes them toward hotter inner Earth layers.
13 6.4 After You ReadName the factors that contribute to metamorphism and describe how they can interact to form different metamorphic rocks.Factors are heat, pressure, fluids or gases the rocks contacts, and dryness of parent rock.They can combine in many ways, resulting in different changes to parent rocks, and thus different metamorphic rocks result.
14 6.4 After You Read2. Explain why some metamorphic rocks foliate while others do not.Rocks made of densely packed and uniform crystals tend to not foliate while those made in layers or bands tend to foliate.
