1. The cow jumped over the moon.

("over" is similar to "above" but it's used with words that express movement like "go," "run," "fly," "throw," etc.)

2. A rainbow appeared over the horizon when the sun came out.

 3. The firefighter ran over to the burning house to save the people inside.

("run over" = go to. In this example, the word "over" is part of the verb and not a preposition, but I included here because you find "over" used with many idioms.

 4. I love the sound of water running over rocks in a stream.

 5. She put sunblock all over her boyfriend's back.

6. The smoke over the house indicates that someone is inside.

 7. Their dream is to sail all over the world.
