8 - The Rock Cycle

Learning Objectives State the Earth is constantly changing (L3) |Describe the rock cycle and how rocks change from one type to another (L5) | Explain how volcanic eruptions can be predicted (L7) Changes You already know that rocks come in three types: Sedimentary Igneous Metamorphic 10 min - Complete the card sort to show three examples of each one! But how can they change from one type to another? You have two minutes to discuss and write down your ideas if you get stuck, think about how each can be destroyed The Rock Cycle Learning Objectives

State the Earth is constantly changing (L3) Describe the rock cycle and how rocks change from one type to another (L5) Explain why we have volcanoes and earthquakes (L7) Learning Objectives State the Earth is constantly changing (L3) |Describe the rock cycle and how rocks change from one type to another (L5) | Explain how volcanic eruptions can be predicted (L7) Answers Sedimentary Chalk formed from compressed remains of dead sea micro-organisms Igneous

Basalt has crystals which are just visible (but v small!) Metamorphic Slate produced from mudstone under low heat and low pressure Sedimentary Conglomerate made mainly from pebbles squashed together under pressure Igneous Granite has large crystals from cooling slowly deep under ground

Metamorphic Marble formed when limestone strongly heated and compressed Sedimentary Sandstone made from grains of sand squashed together under great pressure Igneous Obsidian like glass caused by very fast cooling Metamorphic

Metaquartzite formed when sedimentary sandstone heated Learning Objectives State the Earth is constantly changing (L3) |Describe the rock cycle and how rocks change from one type to another (L5) | Explain how volcanic eruptions can be predicted (L7) The Rock Cycle The Earth, and Rocks are always changing very simply, this is how it works: Sedimentary rock Igneous rock Metamorphic rock Learning Objectives

Include all of the labels that you can, try to do as much as you can by looking at the picture first. Learning Objectives

State the Earth is constantly changing (L3) |Describe the rock cycle and how rocks change from one type to another (L5) | Explain how volcanic eruptions can be predicted (L7) Even more changes! Expert topics: 1. 2. 3. 4. Tectonic plates Tectonic plate boundaries Volcanoes Earthquakes 5 minutes to read, memorise and become and expert in your section!

Then, as a group of four, you will take it in turns to explain your section.
