The rock cycle

Rocky's journey around the rock cycle

Hi, my name is Rocky. I am your guide on the journey around the rock cycle. The rock cycle is a continuous process that occurs over millions of years. It makes new rock, destroys old rock, and recycles the ingredients of the Earth's crust over and over again!
