Schist is metamorphic rock with well developed foliation. It often contains significant amounts of mica which allow the rock to split into thin pieces. It is a rock of intermediate metamorphic grade between phyllite and gneiss. The specimen shown above is a "chlorite schist" because it contains a significant amount of chlorite. It is about two inches (five centimeters) across.

Lewisian Gneiss Rock, Isle of Lewis -the Geology of the Outer Hebrides is  important - as the predominant rock type is a Lewisian Gneiss - a metamorphic rock which is astonishingly up to 3 billion years old, making it the oldest rock in Britain - two thirds the age of the Earth.

: Folded strata in gneiss. Polished slab of folded gneiss rock. Gneiss is a metamorphic rock, one formed at high temperatures and pressures deep within the Earth's crust. The high pressures produce the folds in the banding seen here. The lighter coloured layers are formed by feldspar and quartz, while muscovite, biotite and hornblende are commonly abundant in the darker bands. This sample is 13 centimetres across.

This section of metamorphic rock found in Oman has been bent and folded in a number of different ways while being subducted on the ocean floor. However the subduction process stopped and the rock was brought to the surface. It is at least 3 meters high and really makes you stop and stare.

Give your student's a break from traditional notes and have them actively engaged for a change! These doodle notes encourage students to use creativity and both hemispheres of their brain. This rock cycle doodle note includes notes about how igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks are formed along with examples of each type. I have also included short notes on how sediments are formed including definitions for weathering, erosion, deposition, compaction, and cementation.
