Sedimentary Rocks

  • SEDIMENTARY ROCKS

    The first thing you're going to want to do is make a Fold-able that looks like the one over to the right --> -->  -->
    (We'll do this part together, just in case...)



    OUTSIDE TOP FLAP: Write "Materials of Sedimentary Rocks"

    INSIDE TOP FLAP: List the 3 main categories of materials that form sedimentary rocks.

    *** Textbook pages A89, A91, & A93 (Hint: Look at the blue headings on those pages.)



    OUTSIDE BOTTOM FLAP: Write "How are sedimentary rocks formed?"

    INSIDE BOTTOM FLAP: 
    Define Sedimentary Rocks
    Describe the role of pressure & cementing in the formation of sedimentary rocks.

    *** Textbook page A78 (in the middle)




    OUTSIDE LEFT FLAP: Write "Clastic Textures"

    INSIDE LEFT FLAP: Describe clastic sedimentary rocks & give examples.


    *** SIGN IN TO GALILEO. FIND THE DIALOG CALLED: CLASSIFYING ROCKS & MINERALSSKIP TO SLIDE 10.


    OUTSIDE RIGHT FLAP: Write "Non-Clastic Textures"

    INSIDE RIGHT FLAP: Describe non-clastic sedimentary rocks & give examples.


    *** SIGN IN TO GALILEO. FIND THE DIALOG CALLED: CLASSIFYING ROCKS & MINERALSSKIP TO SLIDE 11.



    INSIDE MIDDLE: Describe why knowing about sedimentary rocks is important. Use the link below to find out why.



    Raise your hand and have Mrs. Ligon check your work. :)
