C 1 $100 Minerals are the building blocks of all ____.
C 1? $100 Rocks
C 1 $200 If a mineral is described as waxy, what property is being described?
C 1 $200 Luster
C 1 $300 The color of the powder left behind when you rub a mineral against a rough white or black tile, is called what?
C 1 $300 Streak
C 1 $400 A mineral is white and cannot be scratched by the mineral orthoclase (hardness of 6). Identify the mineral and tell how you know.
C 1 $400 The mineral is Quartz. Because it has a hardness of 7, it cannot be scratched by Orthoclase.
C 1 final Final Jeopardy Identify this rock. Where and how was it formed? Timer
C 1 final This is a sedimentary rock because it has layers that were formed as a result of pressure that cemented them together. This rock was probably formed somewhere there was great pressure.
C 2 $100 How do sedimentary rocks form?
C 2 $100 When sediments are pressed together and become cemented.
C 2 $200 What is the process by which sediment settles out of water and wind called?
C 2 $200 Deposition
C 2 $300 Where would you most likely find the sedimentary rock Conglomerate?
C 2 $300 In a river
C 2 $400 What is an example of a sedimentary rock?
C 2 $400 Sandstone, conglomerate, limestone, gypson, shale
C 2 $500 Which process will change a sedimentary rock into another sedimentary rock?
C 2 $500 Weathering
C 3 $100 How are metamorphic rocks formed?
C 3 $100 Metamorphic rocks are formed when high heat and great pressure change the existing rock.
C 3 $200 The word ‘morph’ literally means what?
C 3 $200 Change
C 3 $300 Where on Earth is there enough pressure and heat to change rocks into metamorphic rocks?
C 3 $300 In mountain ranges, underneath many layers of other rocks.
C 3 $400 What is an example of a metamorphic rock?
C 3 $400 Gneiss, Schist, Slate, Marble, Quartzite
C 3 $500 Which process can change a sedimentary rock into a metamorphic rock?
C 3 $500 Heat and/or pressure
C 4 $100 When do Igneous Rocks form?
C 4 $100 When melted rock cools and hardens.
C 4 $200 True or False An Igneous Rock that forms underground has large mineral crystals.
C 4 $200 True
C 4 $300 Where would an Igneous Rock most likely be found?
C 4 $300 Near a volcano.
C 4 $400 You find an Igneous rock with no visible mineral crystals. Where did this rock most likely form?
C 4 $400 Above ground / on Earth’s surface
C 4 $500 What are three ways to classify Igneous Rocks?
C 4 $500 1. Crystal Size 2. Mineral Content 3. Where they were formed
C 5 $100 The process of moving sediment by wind, water, or ice is called?
C 5 $100 Erosion
C 5 $200 Weathering is the process of breaking down rocks into what?
C 5 $200 Sediment
C 5 $300 Which must happen first, erosion or deposition?
C 5 $400 Define the Rock Cycle.
C 5 $400 The Rock Cycle is a continuous process by which one rock type changes into another.
C 5 $500 What three items are found naturally in soil?
C 5 $500 1. Decayed animal matter 2. Weathered rock 3. Deposited sediment
