  • Bryanston Primary School
  • Good Morning 5S, 5T, 5C and 5K. I am missing you all, can't wait to teach in the class again, but in the meantime, let me tell you a story...
  • Process of weathering: Rain, wind,water and plants began breaking down the igneous rock into smaller rock
  • Process of erosion: Sediments are Moved by wind, water and ice into low-lying areas
  • I am going to tell you how sediment rock was formed
  • deposition of sediments
  • Eroded sediments end up in water and begin to settle(Sedimentation)
  • compaction
  • Then, it gets moved to different places on the Earth's surface such as oceans, seas, dams, lakes and rivers
  • Cementation of the sediment to form a rock
  • Most sedimentary rocks form in water, where the weight of the water presses down on the sediment and form layers of sedimentary rock(Compaction)
  •  The sediment layers continue to form, with new layers forming on top of old layers. Sedimentary rocks continue to from all the time
  • Compaction and heat help form the sedimentary rock. Earth's geothermal energy helps create heat to form glue rock with salt crystals found in the sediment that glue the layers together.
  • Hope you enjoyed the cartoon strip Grade 5's. Now go to your activity and make your own comic strip and email it to me.
