a. Weathering – the breakdown of
material at the Earth’s surface.g
i. The
weathered
material is
called
SEDIMENT.
Did you Know?
¾ of rocks on
the Earth’s
surface are
sedimentary?!
?!
ii. Sediment
size varies –
mud, sand,
gravel
b. Erosion – movement of
sediment from on place to
another by WIND, WATER, or
ICE.
c. Deposition – dropping off the
sediment in a new location.
Now it’s time to put them
together!
d. Compaction (Squeezing)
e. Cementation (Gluing)
A. Clastic
Made from
sediment
such as
clay,
gravel, or
sand
i. Sand becomes
sandstone
Did you Know?
The white
house is built
of
sandston

ii. Clay and mud become shale
iii. Gravel becomes
conglomerate.

as water evaporating and leaving rocks
