Here is a song I created to help my 6th grade students study. I hope you enjoy.

When rock will break up pieces
And become smaller now
If they remain simply breaking down

Weathering when water freezes
And thaws in the springtime
It splits rocks in two

And it's ice in a cold December
But water when it becomes warm
And rocks broken they're expanding
And seeps in fissures and the holes that freezes on now

Start with a chunk of large bedrock
It's weathering when it's breaking down
Mechanical and chemical
Biotic, rocks are smaller now

Movement of rocks, taking some time
Erosion rocks moving aside
And out of all the forces done
By water, wind, they travel now, now

It can be chemical reactions
Breaking down bonds
That do hold the rocks together
Makes them fall apart

Oxidation, carbonation, hydrolysis rocks are soft
Helping to break them all apart
By some other force

Start with a chunk of large bedrock
It's weathering when it's breaking down
Mechanical and chemical
Biotic, rocks are smaller now

Movement of rocks, taking some time
Erosion rocks moving aside
And out of all the forces done
By water, wind, they travel now

The roots go down
The rocks are cracking and breaking
They wedge and widen space they make

And it's ice in a cold December
But water when it becomes warm
And rocks broken they're expanding
And seeps in fissures and the holes that freezes on now

Start with a chunk of large bedrock
It's weathering when it's breaking down
Mechanical and chemical
Biotic, rocks are smaller now

Movement of rocks, taking some time
Erosion rocks moving aside
And out of all the forces done
By water, wind, they travel now

Start with a chunk of large bedrock
It's weathering when it's breaking down
Mechanical and chemical
Biotic, rocks are smaller now
