Hard Rock life

Hard Rock lifeBy: Matthew Eaves, Jacob Burns, Michael Salazar

1

Igneous RocksThis rock is formed by molten rock that hardens and cools. Igneous rock found in areas where there is volcanic activity.

2

Metamorphic RocksThis is a rock that forms deep underground from heat and pressure

3

Sedimentary Rock Sedimentary rock are made from particles of different rocks and are deposited in layers. And over time the become compact and become a rock with layers of sediments. And thats when weathering and erosion comes in play. Weathering is how things are Broken down in smaller rocks. And erosion is how things are carried away by water and wind.

4Granite rocksGranite rocks are a type of igneous rock and most people use this rock to make granite counter tops. A few characteristics about granite is hard, tough, not a flat surface of rock has little bits of other rocks hard to determine.

5

CoalCoal is a rock that classified as a igneous rock. And it a type of rock used everyday, they also fuel our cars trains and any other vehicle. Coal is a type of igneous rock that has a uneven shape of rock and is typically black.

6

LimestoneLimestone is a sedimentary rock and is a rock that has dead sediments form together to make one rock. And usually is the color white.

7Rock CycleMetamorphic rocks can be igneous or sedimentary rocks but is changed by heat and pressure. Metamorphic Rock can melt and cool and be an Igneous Rock. If a Metamorphic Rock breaks down and compacts it turns into Sedimentary Rock. If Igneous Rock weathers and compacts it turns into Sedimentary Rock.

The EndThank you for watching our presentation. This power point was made by: Michael Salazar, Jacob Burns, and Matthew Eaves.9
