Water moves on the earth in a cycle. As the water on the ground and in lakes and oceans interacts with the air some of it evaporates. As the amount of moisture in the air reaches saturation levels, it condenses and form rains and falls back to the ground.
Rain is formed when the sun's heat evaporates water turning it into a vapor. The vapor then rises to a level in the atmosphere where it is cool enough to change back into a liquid.
