What makes it rain?

Rain is part of the water cycle on earth. Water from the earth’s surface evaporates and rises into the atmosphere. As the water droplets cool, they condense into clouds. When the clouds are full of liquid water, they release rain (or snow)…and the cycle repeats.

Don’t let the rain scare you and your kids off. Go outside together, with or without an umbrella. Jump into puddles, look for the end of the rainbow, in case there is one up in the sky, observe what birds and animals do when it rains.
