Rocky the rock

Hi, my name is Rocky
I am your guide on the journey around the rock cycle. It is a long journey and can get a bit confusing, so a few tips may help you find your way.

To start
On the rock cycle homepage you should see a large picture of the rock cycle. Click on any of the words or pictures in this image and you will be taken to one of the stages of the cycle. It's best if you begin at weathering and work your way around the cycle from there.
Start your tour at weathering

Getting back
Once you have found out about one of the stages in the rock cycle you need to go back to the rock cycle homepage, and choose where you want to go next. This is easy to do - just click on the link at the bottom of the page. All links in this section are coloured dark pink, so you can spot them easily. Remember, you can return to the rocks homepage by clicking on 'Rocks' in the banner at the top of the page at any time.
