Rock Cycle Song
(Sing to the tune of "Row, Row, Row Your Boat")

Has been formed in layers

Often found near water sources

With fossils from decayers

Then there's IGNEOUS rock
Here since Earth was born
Molten Lava, cooled and hardened

That's how it is formed

These two types of rocks
Can also be transformed

With pressure, heat and chemicals

METAMORPHIC they'll become.

Click here to here the tune of "Row, Row, Your Boat"
