Click on the pictures below of igneous rocks that were formed as magma slowly cooled and solidified beneath Earth’s surface. The first one (plain black) The last one (Orange, sand looking)The main agents responsible for altering preexisting rock to metamorphic rock are… (Choose all that apply) Hydrothermal solutionPressureHeatThe path a rock takes through the rock cycle… Is varied, and can include cycles within the cycle such as a sedimentary rock is eroded to sediment, which is then formed back into sedimentary rock. The patch may or may not include all three main categories or time as the intermediaries, sediment, or magma. The elements that make up the rocks and minerals of the Earth… (Choose all that apply) Let’s say you are currently classified as a metamorphic rock. What are the possible next processes along your path through the rock cycle? Of the options below, what is the shortest possible path that an extrusive igneous rock could take to become intrusive igneous rock? Match the process or product with the appropriate driver below. 1. Internal driver 2. External driver Energy from the Sun: 2 Hot material rising, cooler material sinking as in convection: 1 Influences weather and climate: 2 Heat generated from radioactive decay of elements within the Earth: 1
