Sports are very popular in today's society - there are even television stations that show nothing but spots shows! But it's important to get moving yourself, not just watch other people being active on TV.
Choose a physical activity that you enjoy doing and that suits your ability. It doesn't matter about your gender, cultural background or age, there is a world of sports and physical activities to choose from. Try some out, until you find one that you enjoy and that gives you the exercise your body needs.
Health and Understanding is a literacy-based series and interactive whiteboard program that helps teachers with these health issues during the last three years of primary school. The series provides teachers and students with the opportunity to explore a range of health topics that are involved in, and required for, a healthy lifestyle.
Written by experienced children’s authors including Hazel Edwards, Goldie Alexander, Alan Horsfield and Wendy St Germain, Health and Understanding is endorsed by the Centre for Hormone Research, a joint department of the Royal Children’s Hospital and Murdoch Childrens Research Institute.
