1. Write about a path through the rock cycle from the perspective of a rock. Begin with the following types of rock: igneous, sedimentary, or metamorphic. Be sure to include details about the forces and processes that change the rock you have chosen.
Hi! I'm a igneous rock. I was just cooled down and formed into rock. Ow! Water's being forced against me. I'm being weathered and now I'm sediment. Now I'm being pressurized and all of the sediment around me is being cemented together. Now I'm a sedimentary rock. I'm sandstone and I'm all gritty. Whew! Now is the room getting smaller? Gawd, it's boiling in here! Ah! All this pressure hurts! Eggegeh, ahhhh! I'm glad that's over! Bye-bye, sedimentary rock, hello, metamorphic rock! I'm igneiss and do I look good! I've got black stripes and a gray surface. Whoah, I'm being sucked into a volcano. Ew, I'm magma and now I'm all liquidy. Whoah, this baby's gonna blow! Wheee! Oof! Ahhh, now I'm back to being obsidian, a igneous rock. Bye!
