Rules Of Grammar: In vs. Into

The preposition “in” is used to represent an action within a certain area. The preposition “into” is used to express a motion towards an area from outside of that area. For example: The boys swam in the lake. (This would denote that the boys were already in the lake.)
The girls dove into the lake.
