Types of Rocks

Types of Rocks

There are three main types of rocks:

Igneous - formed when molten rock cools.

Sedimentary – formed by the “cementing together” of small grains of sediment.

Metamorphic – rocks changed by the effect of heat and pressure.

Slide 2

Igneous Rocks

Igneous Rocks

These are rocks formed by the cooling of molten rock (magma.)

Magma cools and solidifies forming igneous rocks

Slide 3

Sedimentary Rocks

Sedimentary Rocks

Sedimentary Rocks are rocks formed when particles of sediment build up and are “cemented together” by the effect of pressure and minerals.

Slide 4

Metamorphic Rocks

Metamorphic Rocks

Metamorphic rocks are formed by the effect of heat and pressure on existing rocks.

This can greatly affect the hardness, texture or layer patterns of the rocks.
