The water that we drink and use for washing and bathing has been in the form of rain drops at some point. Rain refills dams and lakes and underground waters. Rain also irrigates farms and forests. In the history of mankind, many lakes and rivers have dried, many towns and villages have been abandoned, and many humans and animals have died because of a shortage of rain and water. 

What is rain? How is it formed? What factors affect rainfall? How does a rain gauge work? Measure the rainfall over a period of time and compare it with the daily weather reports. Principles of cloud seeding and other weather modifications.
