Sedimentary Rocks Cornell Notes pg. 133
How do Sedimentary Rocks form?Small rocks, sand, and other sediment are deposited in thick layers. Over time, sediment is compacted and cemented together to form rock.
Where does the sediment come from?Other rocks that are weathered (broken down) Can be from igneous, metamorphic, or even other sedimentary rocks!
What is compaction? cementation?Small rocks and sand are compressed (pressed together) Minerals dissolved in water act as a glue to bind sediment together.
What is strata? Most noticeable feature of sedimentary rocks- rocks layers!
What is Clastic Sedimentary Rock?Fragments of rock and sand are cemented together with dissolved minerals. Can be coarse or fine grained. What is Clastic Sedimentary Rock?
What is Chemical Sedimentary Rock? Rainwater dissolves minerals from rocks Minerals eventually crystallize to form chemical sedimentary rocks. Halite: rock salt
What is Organic Sedimentary Rock? Forms from remains of plants and animals. Coal: ancient swamps Limestone: hard shells of living things
2.4 Sedimentary Rocks.
Sedimentary Rock Strata layers of rock.
Sedimentary Rock (pg.30) Strata
Texture The look and feel of the rocks surface, includes grain, crystals, and pattern.

Sedimentary Rocks. What are we doing today? Objective – I can describe how the processes of weathering, erosion, and deposition contribute to the formation.
Sedimentary Rock Notes. Weathering Weathering is a process that breaks down preexisting rocks into sediment. – Caused by Wind Water Ice Sunlight Gravity.
Sedimentary Rock Chapter 4 Section 3.
Chapter 4 Section 3 Sedimentary Rocks. What You Will Learn Describe the origin of sedimentary rock. Describe the three main categories of sedimentary.
30 November 2011 OBJECTIVE: Describe the origin of sedimentary rock. INTRO Have You ever tried to build a sand castle at the beach? Did you ever wonder.
Chapter 4 Section 4. Most rock is igneous but it is below ground 75 % of exposed rock is Sedimentary Sediments Rock fragments Mineral grains Bits of shell.
Unit 4 Earth – Systems, Structures, and Processes Objective 6.E.2.3.
Sedimentary Rocks. Sedimentary Rocks are #1 Earth’s crust was made of IGNEOUS rocks But 75% of the rocks on the Earth’s crust are SEDIMENTARY! Why?
Sedimentary Rocks Chapter 4-3 Rocks made of bits & pieces of other rocks.
Section 3: Sedimentary Rocks
Mrs. Hutson. Sand is a product of weathering, which breaks rock into pieces. Over time, sand grains may be compacted, or compressed, and then cemented.

Sedimentary Rocks. Made from sediments or rock material that has been broken down in some way. Sedimentary rocks are usually formed in a watery environment.

Classifying Rocks 3 rock types Sedimentary Igneous Metamorphic.
Sedimentary Rocks Chapter 4 Section 4. Sedimentary Rocks Sediments are loose materials like rock fragments, mineral grains, and bits of shell. Sediments.
Rocks. Rock Origin Igneous Rocks - Formed from the cooling of molten magma or lava. Sedimentary Rocks- Formed from particles of other rocks or remains.
Sedimentary Rocks Chapter 4 Section 4.
Rogich Earth Science. ①Rock becomes sediment through weathering & erosion ②Sediment is deposited & piles up in layers ③Sediment is compacted & cemented.
Bell Ringer What type of rock is formed when you melt a rock (magma or lava) and then cool it? Igneous Sedimentary Metamorphic.
MOST SEDIMENTARY ROCKS FORM IN Rock Color The color of a sedimentary rock will be determined by the cementing material and sediment composition Red.
Sedimentary Rocks Rocks made of bits & pieces of other rocks.

Rocks that are formed in flat layers called strata
Sedimentary Rock By: Ashley Borchardt.
Sedimentary rock Formed from sediments (rock fragments, mineral grains, animal & plant remains) that are pressed or cemented together.
Sedimentary Rocks. Origin: Comprise 75% of the Earth’s surface Formed when sediments become compacted and cemented together Usually has layers called.
Coulter. Sediment is small, solid pieces of material that come from rocks or living things. Most sedimentary rocks are formed through a series of processes:
Sedimentary Rocks!. Formation of Sedimentary Rocks 75% of the rocks exposed at the surface of Earth are sedimentary rocks. Sediments are loose materials.
Different Types of Rocks
Sedimentary Rocks. Origin Comprise 75% of the Earth’s surface Formed when sediments become compacted and cemented together Usually has layers called.
Sedimentary Rock c. Classify rocks by their process of formation.
