could someone explain to me why they count water and fire as elements since they can be broken down?

Because Alchemy. Because pre-middle ages. Because Chemistry didn't exist then.

Because it was a common practice to consider cold, heat, hard, and soft to be the things that made up everything. So the most pure form of these were water (cold) fire (heat) earth (hard) and air (soft).
