What is your metabolism
What IS your metabolism?

Your metabolism changes _______ to _________.


Metamorphic rock1
Metamorphic Rock

  • Meaning to change shape

  • Changes with temperature

  • and pressure, but remains

  • solid

  • Usually takes place deep in

  • the Earth

Metamorphic rocks
Metamorphic Rocks

  • Regional Metamorphism – pressure builds up in rocks that is deep within the Earth

  • Large pieces of the Earth’s crust collide and the rock is deformed and chemically changed by heat and pressure

Metamorphic rocks1
Metamorphic Rocks

Hornfels is a fine-grained non-foliated metamorphic rock produced by contact metamorphism

Contact Metamorphism – heated by nearby magma

Increased temperature changes the composition of the rock, minerals are changed into new minerals

Metamorphic rock2
Metamorphic Rock

Marble is a non-foliated metamorphic rock that is produced from the metamorphism of limestone.

It is composed primarily of calcium carbonate.

Non-Foliated – mineral grains are not arranged in plains or bands
