Learning time​

Kids learn by watching short, engaging video lessons.

There are three different types of rocks. Today we're looking at metamorphic rocks. The word metamorphic comes from the Greek word meaning change of shape. Metamorphic rocks form when existing rocks have too much heat surrounding them. This might mean that the current rock has a lot of changes that could include changing shape, or it might even form some crystals inside. It's almost like the rock has been cooked and turned into another rock. One example of a metamorphic rock is slate, and slate is often used for roofs on our houses. Another type of metamorphic rock is marble, which is often used for kitchen countertops and to create magical sculptures. And here are some of the crystals that have been found inside metamorphic rocks, how beautiful!
