      I just made a word out of the first letter of each type: SIM

      Sedimentary- compressed, sandstone, limestone.

      Igneous- cooling magma/lava, different cooling rates, basalt (fast), granite (slow).

      Metamorphic- change to igneous or sedimentary by heat or pressure or both (earthquake, magma forced into crust), marble (liMestone: "m" in limestone for marble).
