Fun Fact

Rain is droplets of water that fall from clouds. Heat from the sun turns the moisture(water) from plants and leaves, as well as oceans, lakes and rivers into water vapour(gas), which disappears into the air. This vapour rises, cool and changes into tiny droplets which form clouds. The clouds join to form bigger drops when the water droplets get too large and heavy, they fall as rain.

Big heavy droplets are called rain and the smaller droplets are called drizzle.

It take 700 drizzle droplets to make 1 rain droplet.
