Three types of Sedimentary Rocks
Clastic, Chemical, and Organic
Clastic Rocks
Rocks formed when broken pieces of other rocks are squeezed together, grouped by size of rock fragments
Chemical Rocks
Rocks formed when minerals that are dissolved in a solution crystalize or when a lake evaporates due to dry climate forming a large mineral deposit
Organic Rocks
Rocks formed where the remains of plants and animals are deposited in thick layers, made up of parts of living things or made by living things
