Our very own rock cycle!

In science this week we observed the rock cycle in action. First, we stuck lots of sediments together to represent pieces of sediments eroding from cliffs as the weather makes them fall off down into rivers that lead into the sea. These sediments then create layers of rock that press together to form sedimentary rocks. Next, we applied pressure and heat to our sedimentary rocks which caused them to change meaning they then became metamorphic rocks. Finally we heated up our metamorphic rocks, so they would turn into liquid rock, which is called magma. This magma then cooled, meaning the rock has now become igneous. It was so much fun to observe the formation of each type of rock!
