In your presentation, include the following items:

  • a description of the main types of rocks (igneous, sedimentary, & metamorphic),
  • various examples of each rock type,
  • the connection of magma & sediments in the rock cycle processes,
  • how different types of geological processes (weathering & erosion, compaction & cementation, heat & pressure, cooling & melting) are involved within the rock cycle.
    Be sure to have appropriate figures, maps, graphs, tables, etc. in your presentation. Include a listing of the references used.
