How do clastic sedimentary rocks form? Lava cools and hardens into rock. Plant and animal remains are squeezed and cemented together. Solid chemicals in water harden and form rocks. Fragments of rock are squeezed and cemented together.

Their names are based on their clast or grain size. The smallest grains are called clay, then silt, then sand. Hope this helps! :)
