Unit 9: Earth Materials



(6.10a) ‍‍(I can build a model to illustrate the structural layers of Earth, including the inner core, outer core, mantle, crust, asthenosphere and lithosphere.)

(6.10b) ‍‍(I can classify rocks as metamorphic, igneous or sedimentary by the processes of their formation.)


Vocabulary:


  • Metamorphic – a type of rock formed when igneous or sedimentary rocks are put under intense heat and/or pressure in the Earth’s crust
  • Igneous – a type of rock formed when crystallized through melting and cooling rock
  • Sedimentary – a type of rock formed through the accumulation, compaction, and cementation of sediment
  • Rock cycle – the continual process by which rocks can be changed into different types of rock
  • Asthenosphere –the somewhat fluid portion of the mantle upon which the lithosphere is located
  • Lithosphere – the top most layer of the Earth, which is comprised of the crust and solid portion of the upper mantle, divided into plates, and moves a top the layer known as the asthenosphere
