Erosion—Moving pieces of the Earth’s surface from one place to another. This is usually caused by moving water or wind.
 
Wind—What happens when the air around us moves from place to place.
 

Wind 

Weathering—The breaking down of the earth’s surface into smaller pieces.  It can be caused by wind, water, ice, plants, gravity, and changes in temperature.
 
Rock Cycle—The rock cycle is the long, slow journey of rocks down from Earth's surface and then back up again. Rocks often change during this process. During the rock cycle, rocks form deep in the Earth, move and sometimes change, go up to the surface, and eventually return below the ground.
Igneous Rocks—A rock that is formed when magma cools down and becomes a solid.  It can form either above the ground or below the surface.
 
Sedimentary Rocks—A rock formed by layers of materials that have been squeezed by pressure and hardened.
 
Metamorphic Rocks—A rock that has been changed by heat and pressure.
