Hi, I'm an igneous rock that just formed inside of this volcano from the cooling of magma. But I'm going to be a sedimentary rock soon and I'll tell you how.
The first step is weathering. Pieces of me will break off and will be called sediment. Sediments can be made out of rocks, sand, and shells.
Then, during the erosion step the sediments move by wind, water, or ice. In this case the wind is moving the sediments to a body of water.
The third step is deposition, where the sediments end up in a body of water after being dropped in by the wind.
Now a lot of sediments are stacked onto each other and are going to be pressed together. This step is called compaction.
The final step is cementation which is when the sediments are "glued" together and become a sedimentary rock
There you go. Now you have learned the steps of how a sedimentary rock is made.
