cooling & hardening processes that allow magma or lave to form into igneous rock
heat & pressure processes that allow sedimentary rock to form into metamorphic rocks
weathering & erosion processes that allow rocks to turn into sediments
chemical weathering breaking down rocks by changing their composition
erosion moving of earth materials from one place to another
glacial deposition when glaciers leave behind earth materials
glacial erosion earth material moved downhill by an ice sheet
