How can rocks tell a story?

How can rocks tell a story?Sedimentary rocks are formed from layers of sand, mud and pebbles over long periods of time. Each rock layer tells a story of how it was formed in its environment such as a desert, river or sea bed. If there were animals or plants around, then often these have become fossilised within the rock layers. You can try and make your own rock and tell a fantastic story or changing climate and exotic animals and plants that lived in your ancient world!
