It’s Rock Week, so let’s rock!
Metamorphic rocks are formed under the earth where pressure and temperatures reach extreme levels, morphing them into new shapes. Because of the extreme pressure and heat, metamorphic rocks are tougher and more compact that sedimentary rocks. The sizes of these rocks can be mixed, and the lines in the rock may be bent or warped as a result of the extreme heat. Colours range from near white to dark grey.
Here’s a video from Dr. Matthew Genge that should help you understand where these rocks come from:Tags: fun, kids, metamorphic, outdoors, rocks
