Hi angela hunt,

Great question! Here are the definitions for the terms you mentioned:

Magma, a hot liquid made from melted minerals, cools and forms igneous rocks (crystals).

Wind and weathering lead to the erosion of larger rocks into pieces of sediment, also known as small pieces of rock.

Deposition occurs when small rock particles settle on Earth's surface.

Below, I'm attaching a link to an article about the rock cycle that goes into a little more detail.

Hope this helps!
