Rock Cycle Diagram
The rock cycle is a process where different types of rock on, and in, the lithosphere are created
and destroyed through a number of different processes. Your job is to discover and understand:
 the properties of these rock types.
 where these rock types can be found throughout the lithosphere
 the processes that create, and destroy the rocks that make up the lithosphere.
Step 1
 With a pencil, draw a cross-section of the lithosphere that includes a mid-ocean ridge/rift
zone and a subduction zone (convergent boundary) that includes a volcano.
 Draw all of this so that the drawing spans a landscape view on your paper.
 Get this signed off by the teacher before continuing.
Step 2
Label on the diagram, using text boxes, where and how new rock is created and old rock is
destroyed during plate tectonic processes.
Step 3
Use the book resources available to you to diagram, label and describe:
 Where the three rock types can be found.
 How each type of rock forms
(Internet resources are for out-of-class work only.)
Step 4
 Draw and label, the ways the volcano can be weathered and eroded over time.
 Describe using an outline format the ways the volcano can be weathered and eroded
over time.
 Connect the outline to the diagram using letter, number, or other symbol designations.
Be sure to include at least two types of weathering and two types of erosion processes.
