10.4 Discuss the following topic in groups. Then, tell the class whether you agree or disagree and why.

“In choosing and playing any sports there should not be any difference between boys and girls.”
For example, you can start by saying –
I agree. I think both boys and girls can play all the games because both enjoy the
games……

ANSWER is here :

I agree. I think both boys and girls can play all the games because both enjoy the games. Besides, girls are also talented and hardworking as boys. Even in the Olympics both boys and girls participate in the same events. They bring so many medals also and make their country very proud. Moreover, games and sports are very helpful for their physical and mental growth. So there should not be any difference between boys and girls in choosing and playing any sports.

THE BOY UNDER THE TREE

There should not be any difference between boys and girls in choosing and playing sports because:

  • Sports are a great way for kids to stay active and healthy. Both boys and girls need regular physical activity to develop strong bones and muscles, improve cardiovascular health, and reduce the risk of obesity and chronic diseases.
  • Sports can teach kids valuable life skills. Playing sports teaches kids teamwork, sportsmanship, discipline, and goal-setting. These are all important skills that kids will need in school, work, and life in general.
  • Sports can help kids build self-confidence. When kids succeed in sports, it can boost their self-esteem and confidence. This can lead to them being more successful in other areas of their lives as well.
  • Sports can help kids break down gender stereotypes. When boys and girls play sports together, it helps to challenge the idea that certain sports are only for boys or girls. This can lead to a more equitable and inclusive society.

THE BOY UNDER THE TREE

Of course, there are some physical differences between boys and girls that may affect their performance in certain sports. For example, boys tend to be stronger and faster than girls on average. However, these differences are not so great that they should prevent boys and girls from playing the same sports together. With proper training and coaching, girls can be just as successful as boys in most sports.

In fact, there are many examples of girls who have excelled in traditionally male-dominated sports. For example, Serena Williams is one of the most successful tennis players of all time, and Megan Rapinoe is a world-renowned soccer player. These women are role models for girls everywhere, and they show that there is no limit to what girls can achieve in sports.

THE BOY UNDER THE TREE

Ultimately, the best way to ensure that all kids have the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of sports is to break down the barriers that prevent boys and girls from playing together. When boys and girls can play the same sports together, it creates a more level playing field and gives everyone a chance to succeed.
