BCR: Use what you have learned about erosion and weathering, to describe two
different ways rocks could have formed.
Possible answers: Erosion caused the rocks to form. Wind, water, gravity and
glaciers can cause erosion. Wind and water can carry materials and cause changes
to landforms. Rainwater causes erosion – it can carry soil from hilly fields. Wind can
pick up dry sand and soil and blow them to other places. Gravity pulls rocks and soil
