# Solar System for Class 1 Maths

This discussion is about the planets and stars in the solar system and will help the students to relate the concept of ordinal numbers, comparing numbers, etc., in mathematics. Also, it will define how the idea of ascending and descending order is related to the topic.

## What Is Solar System

The Sun and the Moon rise in the sky daily, and we can see them with our naked eyes.

There are so many galaxies in space, but we cannot see those galaxies in the sky with the naked eye. The Sun is a star in our galaxy, and the Moon is Earth's natural satellite. Our solar system is a part of the Milky Way galaxy.

The Sun is a star from which we get light. It is very far away from us. The Sun is the biggest object in the solar system. Other objects in our solar system include planets, satellites, comets, dwarf planets and asteroids revolving around the Sun.
