Monday 12/2/2019 - We did a quick recap of where we are. We are talking about Rock Transformations and the Unit Question is How do rocks form and change? The short answer is the Rock Cycle. The rock cycle shows how rock can change from one type of rock in to any other type of rock. There are three types of rock based on how they form. Igneous rock forms when magma or lava (molten rock) cools. Sedimentary rock forms when rock weathers and erodes and then goes through compaction and cementation. Metamorphic rock forms when any type of rock undergoes heat and pressure, but not enough to completely melt it into magma. Metamorphic rocks simply change.
We also reviewed the Amplify chapters we have completed. We left off with a question about whether the sedimentary rock of the Great Plains came from the Rocky Mountains, or whether the rock of the Rocky Mountains came from the Great Plains.
Then we started watching a video on Colliding Continents which ties many of the concepts from the last unit to this unit. A link to the video is in the resources below, or try this link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i8Zo1_FN6xw
