Rocks

Inspired by our visit to Lundy, we revisited learning around the three different types of rocks: sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous and how they are formed. We explored some rocks together and had fun identifying them, then used them for inspiration for some continuous line drawing in black ink.

  1. When learning about rocks I found out that Lundy is an unerupted volcano. Granite is an igneous rock which means it’s volcanic.

    • Do you think it is a volcano that hasn’t erupted, or maybe it didn’t quite make it to that stage? How else can igneous rock be made? Do you remember the words extrusive and intrusive?

  2. There are three different types of rock:
    Sedimentary
    Igneous
    Metamorphic
    Every natural rock in the world is either Sedimentary, Igneous or Metamorphic, I think of the rocks like the classes of animals for example Mammals, Amphibians etc. Each class of animal contains different species. Like we are mammals and so are sheep. It’s like rocks.

    • What a fantastic observation! Do you remember the Lundy guide telling us that because scientists are always discovering new things they sometimes change the way that they classify living things?
