Ciencias: The Crayon Rock Cycle
Our igneous rock, the crayon, went through some weathering and erosion until it turned into sediments. Later, these sediments were compacted and cemented into a new rock, the "Sedimentary Rock". With heat and more pressure, the sedimentary rock went through some transformation and changes. It now turned into a "metamorphic rock". Our rock continued the cycle and became magma. The magma cool off and our totaly new "igneous rock" was formed.
Erosion tools: plastic knives and a pencil sharpenner
magma: hot water
sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic rocks
