Nature of Physical Growth for 9-11 Years Boys
Keywords:Children, Growth Status, Natural Development, Primary Boys
Human life is considered to be the path of journey that starts with the pre-natal stage and thereafter follows intermediate stages of early childhood, late childhood, pre-adolescence, adolescence, adulthood, and finally ends with death. Generally, the growth and development patterns of human beings are studied in different phases. The purpose of the present study was to analyze the status of physical growth for 9-11 years’ primary school children. A total number of 90 primary school boys volunteered as subjects for the present study; out of them 30 were from class three (9 years), 30 were from class four (10 years) and rest 30 were from class five (11 years). The selected parameters to measure physical growth status were body weight, standing height, arm length, leg length, and sitting height. Results indicated that there was a linear growth from Class-III to Class-V in each of the selected anthropometric parameters and the growth rate is positive for children in different age level.
