When temperature rises in water, the molecules are activated and they gain energy to move faster. As a liquid the molecules are wide apart but not as much as in gases. The more energy they'll gain the more it will start changing into gases. This is how the process of evaporation is. The gas form of water is called water vapors.

Matter(solid) occupies space and so the molecules are closer to each other, in liquid these are further apart, and in the gaseous state they are no longer taking a shape (Usually liquid takes shape of the container). Whereas the gas(as incase of water it is water vapour) the molecules have high energy due to heat and are very far apart and hence ice changes to water and water changes to vapour due to heat.

Hence evaporation takes place and all the ice or water is lost in this process, which is actually reversible and we can get the same water back upon condensation.
