Over billions of years, the rock that was the earth was continually broken down, and worn away, by
the abrasive forces of moving wind, water and ice, and the rock became particles of rock, and dust, and
soil, as falling vegetation, and people, animals, birds, and creatures, died, (fell to the ground), and were
churned into the earth by the actions of microorganisms, heat, cold, wind, and flowing water.
Soil is made up of particles of worn down rock, decaying vegetation, microorganisms, water, and air.
