1 of 5
Name the 3 types of weathering?
Biological, Chemical and Physical
2 of 5
How is physical weathering caused?
Changes in temperature and the effects of wind, rain and waves.

By plants, animals and humans. For example an animal might live in a crack in a rock then slowly that crack will get bigger
