Table of Contents Earth’s Interior Convection and the Mantle Classifying Rocks Igneous and Metamorphic Rock Sedimentary Rocks The Rock Cycle Earth’s Structure and Materials
Waves Paths of ocean waves change when the waves reach an island. Earth’s Interior
Earth’s Crust The circle graph shows the composition of Earth’s crust. Earth’s Interior
Mantle Piece Earth’s mantle is nearly 3,000 kilometers thick. The rigid lithosphere rests on the softer material of the asthenosphere. Earth’s Interior
Order of Earth’s Layers Crust Mantle (lithosphere which includes crust and asthenosphere) Outer Core Inner Core
Temperature Inside Earth The graph shows how temperatures change between Earth’s surface and the core. ***Can you read this graph? Earth’s Interior
Mantle Convection Heat from the core and the mantle itself causes convection currents in the mantle. Convection and the Mantle How does a Lava Lamp Model Convection Currents?
Rock Origins Rocks are classified by the way they formed. Classifying Rocks
How Sedimentary Rock Forms Sedimentary rocks form through a series of processes over millions of years. Sedimentary Rocks
What is the proper sequence of the terms in the word bank that will show how mountains can change into sedimentary rock? Sedimentary Rocks
The Rock Cycle Through melting, weathering and erosion, and heat and pressure, the rock cycle constantly changes rocks from one type into another type. The Rock Cycle
Patterns in the Rock Cycle: Surface Events All of the paths of the rock cycle result from only a few surface and subsurface processes. What words belong in the empty boxes in the graphic organizer?
