3Sedimentary RockForm from particles (sediments) deposited by wind and water.Sediment undergoes the cycle of Erosion, Deposition, Compaction, and Cementation (or lithification)There are three main types of Sedimentary rocksClastic, Organic, and Chemical

5Igneous Rock Any rock that forms from magma or lava. (fire rock) Can be extrusive or intrusive.Classified according to its:Origin (Intrusive/Extrusive)Texture (fine/coarse grained, porphyritic, etc.)Mineral Composition (silica content)
10Rock CycleForces inside Earth and at the surface produce a rock cycle that builds, destroys, and changes the rocks in the crust.
11Rock CycleThe rock cycle is the series of processes on and beneath the Earth’s surface that slowly change rocks from one kind to another.
12Rocks ChangingAny rock can become any other rock in the rock cycle.
13The rock cycle can progress through many different pathways. One example might include: molten rock spews from a volcano and cools forming igneous rock, which gets eroded and deposited as sedimentary rock which gets pushed down further into the crust and becomes metamorphic.
