Transcript
convergent
plate boundaries that
are coming together
divergent
plate boundaries that
are moving apart
transform
plate boundaries that
are sliding past each
other
crust
the surface
of the Earth
mantle
the middle layer of
the Earth made up of
molten rock
core
the inner, most
dense part of the
Earth
weathering
when larger rocks
get broken down into
smaller pieces
erosion
when pieces of rock
get moved from one
location to another
by wind and rain
deposition
when small pieces of
rock get dropped off
someplace else, like
a body of water
sedimentary
rocks that are
formed when small
pieces get pressed
together over time
igneous
rocks that are
formed by melting
and then cooling
metamorphic
rocks that are
formed by heating
and pressure over
time
