"As the earth continued to cool the clouds burst and the rain fell
The low land was covered with with water and the mountains were gradually worn down
The sediments collected in layers and on more and more layers laid down they slowly hardened to make sedimentary rocks. It is in these rocks the record of life on earth is kept."
