    Rocks that form from pieces of other rocks that were eroded & weathered
  • Q6
    Igneous Formation
    Rocks that form from molten rock (magma)
  • Q7
    Metamorphic Formation
    Rocks that are formed due to intense heat and pressure
  • Q8
    Extrusive Igneous (description)Rocks that form when molten rock reaches the earth's surface and cools (OUTSIDE THE EARTH)

    Rock that formed from the remains of living things.
  • Q13
    Foliated Metamorphic (description)
    When rocks are exposed to extreme pressure that mainly goes in ONE DIRECTION, they stretch the minerals into long layers/bands.
  • Q14
    Nonfoliated Metamorphic (description)
    Forms when pressure is spread equally, so they don't form any bands.
  • Q15
    What do ripple marks, cross-bedding, & mud cracks tell us about sedimentary rocks?
    What used to be there (water was once there); how they formed (water or wind moving sediment)
