Igneous Rocks
Igneous Rocks are rocks which came from very, very hot and melted magma below the earth’s crust
2 Kinds of Igneous Rocks Intrusive Igneous Rock Intrusive Igneous Rock
Intrusive Igneous Rocks rocks that form from magma trapped below the earth’s surface have large mineral grains and a co...
Granite Basalt
Extrusive Igneous Rocks rocks formed from cooled lava on the earth’s surface Have finer texture
Obsidian Pumice
Examples ofIgneous Rocks
Granite formed from magma that cooled slowly has a coarse grained texture may be pink, white-gray, or light to ...
Example: Granite
Basalt formed from lava that cooled rapidly has fire grained texture its mineral grains are so tiny maybe black or...

Obsidian formed from lava that cooled rapidly has a texture as smooth as glass maybe brown or black it is hard and bri...
Example: Obsidian
Pumice formed from lava Looks like a sponge with many holes It is light and float on water Maybe light yellow or gray ...
Example: Pumice
Sedimentary Rocks
Sedimentary Rocks formed from sediments
Examples ofSedimentary Rocks
Sandstone consist of fine sand cemented together it is coarse-grained and filled with tiny holes or spaces
Limestonemade up of shells and skeletons of smallsea animals
Conglomerate made from a mixture of round pebbles and stones has a course mixture
Shale formed from fine mud clay and silt. it has a smooth surface and can be slit into layers
Dolomite similar to limestone composed mainly of magnesium
Metamorphic Rocks
Metamorphic Rocksformed from igneous rocks sedimentaryand even other metamorphic rocks
Examples ofMetamorphic Rocks
Slate comes from shale hard and smooth breaks into flat sheets
Schist made from mudstone
Serpentine a rock that easily crumbles to the weather it is slippery
Quartzite made from sandstone
Gneiss formed from shale, sandstone, granite and conglomerate
Marble comes from limestone
