The rock cycle is the long, slow journey of rocks down from Earth’s surface and then back up again. Rocks often change during this process. During the rock cycle, rocks form deep in the Earth, move and sometimes change, go up to the surface, and eventually return below the ground. Hey there Mickey the bee, I'm here to tell you about the rock cycle. Hi Roger the rock, There is a rock cycle? how does it work? Yeah! There's a rock.

The rock cycle is a basic concept in geology that describes transitions through geologic time among the three main rock types: sedimentary, metamorphic, and rock type is altered when it is forced out of its equilibrium conditions. For example, an igneous rock such as basalt may break down and dissolve when exposed to the atmosphere, or melt as it is subducted under a continent. The book, "The Rock Factory: A Story About The Rock Cycle" describes how a rock is made and the different changes that it goes through. This book can be used for a 2nd grade science lesson in which students examine different rocks that they brought and categorize them /5. The rock cycle is a concept of geology that describes the transition of rocks between the three rock types: igneous, sedimentary, and cycle outlines how each rock type can be converted to another rock type through geologic processes. What is the rock cycle? Most of us think of rocks as objects which don’t : Daniel Nelson.
The rock cycle is an illustration that is used to explain how the three rock types are related to each other and how Earth processes change a rock from one type to another through geologic time. Plate tectonic movement is responsible for the recycling of rock materials and is the driving force of the rock cycle. The author uses colorful pictures and creative text in describing the rock cycle, differences between rocks and minerals, and other related topics.
