The Rock Cycle
The rock cycle consists of three major families of rocks. Igneous rocks form when molten rock cools. The floors of all the oceans are igneous rocks. Three major groups of sedimentary rocks are clastic rocks, organic rocks, and chemical rocks. Metamorphic rocks form when the Earth's plates collide.
