Can you tell the difference between rocks? I can and i'll show you

There are different types of rocks, sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic are the different types of rocks The names of the 2 major classification groups for igneous rocks that are intrusive and extrusive.

This is a Sedimentary rocks, they are made when sand, mud and pebbles get laid down in layers. over time these layers are squashed under more and more layers. eventually, the layers are turned to rock.
Metamorphic rocks form from already existing rocks. They can form from igneous, sedimentary, and existing metamorphic rock. They are formed by extreme heat or pressure. The rocks don't melt they recrystallize.
Igneous means"fire formed" rocks that form from molten rock that solidfries(hardens) are called igneous
