Student Instructions

Rock Cycle Interactive (Notes)

1. View the animation (Step 2) and pictures (Step 1 and 3). This show just one example of a rock moving through the rock cycle. The rock started as an igneous rock. 2. Think about what the path of the example rock would look like in this diagram of the rock cycle. Keep in mind that the example didn't show all the ways rocks move through the rock cycle. For instance, igneous rocks can become metamorphic rocks without reaching Earth's surface or becoming sedimentary rocks. Another variation from the example is that any type of rock can become a new rock of the same type. 3. Write a paragraph or more to describe the sequence of processes that result in igneous rocks. -Describe how an igneous rock can become a metamorphic rock. -Describe how an igneous rock can become a sedimentary rock. -Describe how a sedimentary rock can become an igneous rock (Think carefully!!!)
