Resource summary

Question 1

Question
The rock cycle involves changing the 3 types of rock from [blank_start]one to another[blank_end]
Answer
  • one to another

Question 2

Question
WEATHERING is [blank_start]breaking down[blank_end] rocks into [blank_start]smaller[blank_end] bits
Answer
  • smaller
  • breaking down

Question 3

Question
Rainwater contains dissolved [blank_start]gases[blank_end] from the [blank_start]air[blank_end] that make it slightly [blank_start]acidic[blank_end]
Answer
  • gases
  • air
  • acidic

Question 4

Question
Chemical Weathering happens when the slightly acidic rain falls onto the rocks it reacts with the [blank_start]minerals[blank_end] in those rocks
Answer
  • minerals

Question 5

Question
The new substance formed in Chemical Weathering may be [blank_start]soluble[blank_end] (able to dissolve) and [blank_start]washed away[blank_end] or they may be more [blank_start]crumbly[blank_end] than the original rock
Answer
  • soluble
  • washed away
  • crumbly

Question 6

Question
Trees can also help break up rocks. Plant roots can grow into the [blank_start]cracks[blank_end] in the rocks. When the roots grow [blank_start]bigger[blank_end] they make the cracks [blank_start]wider[blank_end] and the rock can [blank_start]break apart[blank_end]
Answer
  • cracks
  • bigger
  • wider
  • break apart

Question 7

Question
There are [blank_start]2[blank_end] types of Physical Weathering
Answer
  • 2

Question 8

Question
Rocks [blank_start]expand[blank_end] (get bigger) and [blank_start]contract[blank_end] (get smaller) when the [blank_start]temperature[blank_end] changes. If the this happens to the rock over and over again, [blank_start]cracks[blank_end] can form. This is called [blank_start]onion skin[blank_end] weathering
Answer
  • expand
  • contract
  • temperature
  • cracks
  • onion skin

Question 9

Question
When water gets into cracks in rocks and then [blank_start]freezes[blank_end], water [blank_start]expands[blank_end] as it [blank_start]freezes[blank_end], causing the cracks to get [blank_start]bigger[blank_end]. This is called [blank_start]freeze thaw action[blank_end]
Answer
  • freezes
  • expands
  • freezes
  • bigger
  • freeze thaw action

Question 10

Question
EROSION is the [blank_start]movement[blank_end] of the broken bits of rock away from the site of [blank_start]weathering[blank_end]
Answer
  • movement
  • weathering

Question 11

Question
TRANSPORTATION is when the broken bits of rock get [blank_start]carried away[blank_end] usually by [blank_start]wind[blank_end] or [blank_start]water[blank_end].
Answer
  • carried away
  • wind
  • water

Question 12

Question
ABRASION is when the bits of rock [blank_start]knock against each other[blank_end] while getting transported.
Answer
  • knock against each other

Question 13

Question
DEPOSITION is the laying down of the [blank_start]sediments[blank_end]
Answer
  • sediments

Question 14

Question
BURIAL, COMPRESSION AND CEMENTATION is [blank_start]squeezing[blank_end] and [blank_start]compressing[blank_end] the layers, eventually forming [blank_start]Sedimentary[blank_end] Rocks
Answer
  • squeezing
  • compressing
  • Sedimentary

Question 15

Question
HEAT AND PRESSURE is the further [blank_start]sqashing[blank_end] and [blank_start]heating[blank_end] turns the rock nto [blank_start]Metamorphic[blank_end] Rocks
Answer
  • sqashing
  • heating
  • Metamorphic

Question 16

Question
MELTING intense heating makes the rock partially [blank_start]melt[blank_end], changing it to [blank_start]magma[blank_end]
Answer
  • melt
  • magma

Question 17

Question
COOLING solidification of the molten rock to form [blank_start]Igneous[blank_end] Rocks
Answer
  • Igneous

Question 18

Question
Glaciers are rivers of [blank_start]ice[blank_end]
Answer
  • ice

Question 19

Question
Glaciers move very slowly but they can transport very large pieces of [blank_start]rock[blank_end]
Answer
  • rock

Question 20

Question
Rocks carried by glacies also [blank_start]scrape away[blank_end] bits of rock from the land they are moving over
Answer
  • scrape away

Question 21

Question
Rocks below the glacier are [blank_start]abraded[blank_end] (scraped away) into very small pieces
Answer
  • abraded

Question 22

Question
Once the rock is abraded, the rock becomes [blank_start]smoother[blank_end] and [blank_start]rounder[blank_end] as all the sharp edges are scraped off
Answer
