Our solar system has its own star—the sun! Our sun isn't the biggest star (it just looks bigger than others from our perspective on Earth). The planets move around the sun at different speeds on their own special tracks called orbits. The sun does a lot for everyone on Earth, including giving us light, keeping us warm, powering the water cycle, and feeding plants.
