The amount of water on Earth remains constant, but it is continually moving around the Earth and its atmosphere in a process called the water cycle. It exists as a liquid (water) in seas, rivers and clouds; it freezes into a solid (ice) as snow and hail; and it also exists as an invisible gas in the air.
When the sun heats up water in rivers, lakes and seas, it changes from a liquid into a gas called water vapour. This process is known as evaporation. As the water vapour rises into the atmosphere, it cools and condemses and forms clouds.As the cloud droplets move around, they collide with each other ang grow bigger. When they are heavy enough, they fall as rain, and the water flows back into rivers, lakes, and seas.
