Rocks made of bits & pieces of other rocks.
Sedimentary RocksIgneous rocks are the most common rocks on Earth, but because most of them exist below the surface you might not have seen too many of them.75 percent of the rocks exposed at the surface are sedimentary rocks.
What is sediment?Sediments are loose materials such as rock fragments, mineral grains, and bits of shell that have been moved by wind, water, ice, or gravity.Sediments come from already-existing rocks that are weathered and eroded. Sedimentary rock forms when sediments are pressed and cemented together, or when minerals form from solutions.
Sedimentary RocksSedimentary rocks may be made of rock fragmentssedimentsor by chemical reactions. The classification of sediments is shown below.
Clastic rocksmade of cemented sedimentsare classified by their grain sizes.
Non-clastic rocks form by chemical precipitation (settling out from a solution.) Limestone is made from calcite, chert from quartz, and halite is rock salt.
Biologic sedimentary rocks come from the remains of organic matter.The most important of these is coal. Anthracite coal results from the greatest pressure and releases the most energy when burned. Other varieties are bituminous and lignite. Petrified (permineralized) wood is another organic rock.

Types of Sedimentary Rocks
Radiometric dating provides an accurate way to estimate the age of fossils. Relative dating estimates the time during which an organism lived.It compares the placement of fossils in layers of rock.Scientists infer the order in which species existed.
Hands On Activity!Sedimentary Sandwich!
Vocabulary Activity Imagine That!Close your eyes and imagine:As the bulldozer dug up your back yard, you happened to notice an interesting rock. It appeared to have an outline of a squid. Think-Pair-Share: What type of rock could it be and why? What could you infer about what your backyard looked like a million years ago?
