Earthís inside crust is made up of pieces that move called plates.
As the plates move, they push and pull the rock underneath it.
Inside the Earth is scorching heat that can melt anything. The
deeper you go toward the center of the Earth, the hotter it gets.
As the plates move, they push down on
even metamorphic rock. This causes the rock texture,
color, or properties to change. It is a little like taking
different colors of clay and mixing them. The final color
depends on what colors were mixed and how much of each color was
