ROCKS!!! by: Isabel Villanueva : 

ROCKS!!! by: Isabel Villanueva Definition A naturally formed solid that is usually made up of one or more types of minerals. Fun Facts Some rocks formed when lava cools. This is igneous rock. Sedimentary rocks are formed by being pushed together over time, and they are found on earths surface.

The three types of rocks by Ryleigh Glenn : 

The three types of rocks by Ryleigh Glenn Sedimentary rock is a type of rock that settles. In addition to pieces of rock and minerals plants animals and older rock get pressed together or get cemented together. It also forms when water evaporates . Metamorphic rock is a type of rock that is created by heat or pressure. It is also created by older rocks changing into new types of rock. Igneous rock is a type of rock that is formed when molten rock cools.

Pictures of All Rock Types! BY: MIA VINCENT : 

Pictures of All Rock Types! BY: MIA VINCENT This is a example of Metamorphic rock. Which is Slate. This is a example of Igneous rock. Which is Obsidian. These are examples of Sedimentary rocks. Which are variety’s of types in this picture.

Uses and types of rock used : 

Uses and types of rock used Limestone –concrete Marble-buildings Granite-tabletops Sand-glass Concrete (limestone) Washington monument (marble) Countertop (granite) Glass (sand)

The rock cycle : 

The rock cycle The rock cycle is the cycle that rocks go through when they change . Like if you took sedimentary rock and melted it would become igneous rock . If you applied heat and pressure it would become metamorphic rock . It has all the combinations of the rocks changing.

Elephant rocks : 

Elephant rocks The sun moves the rock into new shapes. the elephant use to be a arch until the sun molded it to be an elephant shape . The elephant rocks were formed by a sand storm. Valley of fire state park east entrance, Nevada sandstone
