Draw pictures to help you understand erosion. Use Figure 6-2 to
help you. In the top part of each box, draw a picture of one of
the four main causes of erosion: wind, moving water, gravity, and
glaciers. In the bottom half, draw a picture of the kind of sediments
that form from each cause of erosion: layered sediments, wellsorted sand, or unsorted piles.
