NC Culture Kids - Stone Mountain State Park: Rock Formations
Unrestricted Use
Public Domain
Rating
0.0 stars

In this short video and accompanying activity and readings, students learn how each rock has a unique story about how it formed and how the forces of erosion shape what it looks like today. There are places where, long ago, big pockets of magma cooled deep underground, and after years and years of erosion, we can now see this igneous rock at the surface of the Earth. This video shows how we can see one of these locations in North Carolina - a granodiorite pluton called Stone Mountain.
