About the book
This book has been written to introduce the subject of “Health and Physical Education” to the students of Class IX-X. Understanding this subject in the early stage of one’s life can help in laying the foundation of a healthy future. The problems related to the environment and health are many. The book has been written with an objective to enlighten the young minds to understand such problems, so that they may contribute their might in solving them.
The subject of Health Education is directly linked with health and healthy living. This subject is also related to the subject of Physical Education, because the aim of both the subject is almost the same. I hope that the students by taking interest in the subjects of health and physical education will not only improve their health, but will also improve their skills in games and sports of their choice.
It has not been possible to cover all the games and sports in this book, however, many popular games, athletics, gymnastics and swimming events have been included. Keeping in view the needs of this particular age group of students, basic rules and techniques of various ‘games’ and events have been dealt with, in a very concise form. To make the things clear, diagrams and sketches have been included at appropriate places.
