6th grade ROCKS -SMS

6th grade ROCKS - SMS

rock formed from one or more minerals
Igneous rocks rocks formed from molton earth materials
Extrusive Igneous rocks formed by molton rockon the earths surface; when magma comes out of a volcano then cools and hardens
Intrusive Igneous rocks formed from molton rock cooling within the earth's crust
sedimentary rocks formed by weathering and deposition
Clastic sedimentary rock sedimentary rock made of rock fragments, minerals, and broken shells
Non-clastic sedimentary rock sedimentary rocks that are formed from solutions or by organic processes
metamorphic rocks formed by changes in pre-existing rocks cuased by extreme temps, pressure or both
wind erosion agent that is likely in a flat plain with little rain
Appalachian Mountains location where mass wasting is most likely to occur
cooling & hardening processes that allow magma or lave to form into igneous rock
heat & pressure processes that allow sedimentary rock to form into metamorphic rocks
weathering process that allows rocks to break up
chemical weathering breaking down rocks by changing their composition
erosion moving of earth materials from one place to another
glacial deposition when glaciers leave behind earth materials
glacial erosion earth material moved downhill by an ice sheet
glaciers large mass of ice sliding over the earth's surface
groundwater water that has seeped into and beneath the soil
mass wasting large amounts of rocks pulled downhill by gravity
physical weathering breaking down rocks by only changing the size
rock cycle the orderly processes which form and change rocks
soil a mixture of weathered rock & decayed organic matter
deposition the laying down, depositing, of sediment in one place
compaction pressing together sediment
cementation sediment that becomes glued together over time
