NBSE Class 9 Social Science Chapter 1: French Revolution
The French Revolution was one of the most important events in world history. It shook the foundation of mediaeval Europe and many important events that happened after the revolution in Europe in the 19th century were directly influenced by the revolution. The French Revolution began in 1789 and lasted till 1799.
NBSE Class 9 Social Science Chapter 2: The Russian Revolution
The Russian Revolution of 1917 made Russia the first country in the world to have a communist government. It also led to a long and bloody Civil War which lasted till 1920, at the end of which the communists had complete control over the country. The fall of the monarchy in February 1917 and the events of October 1917 are normally called the Russian Revolution.
NBSE Class 9 Social Science Chapter 3: Rise of Nazism
After the defeat in the First World War, the German people were not happy about the Weimer Republic. The Weimer Republic was a government set up in Germany after the First World War. Among the many was a young man named Adolf Hitler who wanted to bring a change in Germany and avenge the humiliation that Germany faced in the First World War. Therefore he joined a political party known as National Socialist German Workers’ Party or the Nazi party and became its leader.
NBSE Class 9 Social Science Chapter 4: Indian National Movement
It is ironic that the establishment of British rule in India gave birth to Nationalism in India. First and foremost, India was unified politically for the first time under the British. A uniform legal system, uniform currency, and a uniform system of administration made Indians think of India as one nation. There was a rediscovery of India’s glorious past which revived pride and self-respect among the Indians and gave renewed strength to the Indian National Movement.
NBSE Class 9 Social Science Chapter 5: The Locational Setting and Relief
India is surrounded by seas on three sides- the Arabian Sea, the Indian Ocean and the Bay of Bengal. This locational setting gives India and its immediate neighbouring countries a unique, geographical entity separated from the rest of Asia. So the land comprising them is collectively termed as the Indian subcontinent.
NBSE Class 9 Social Science Chapter 6: Climate
Climate is the long-term effect of the Sun’s radiation on the rotating Earth’s surface and atmosphere. It can be understood most easily in terms of annual or seasonal averages of temperature and precipitation. Because of the unusual topography and geographical position of India, climatic conditions are widely diversified, both on a regional as well as a seasonal basis. This diversity is in the range of extremes – from tropical to temperate zones.
NBSE Class 9 Social Science Chapter 7: Drainage
The term drainage describes the river system of an area. Small streams flowing from different directions come together to form the main river, which ultimately drains into a large water body such as a lake or a sea or an ocean. The area drained by a single river system is called a drainage basin.
NBSE Class 9 Social Science Chapter 8: Natural Vegetation
The earth is a unique planet among all the planets. It is the only planet where life exists. The narrow zone where a variety of organisms exist on the planet is known as the biosphere. This chapter deals with natural vegetation, which is a form of life and means plants or trees that grow on their own without any form of human intervention.
NBSE Class 9 Social Science Chapter 9: Wildlife
Wildlife refers to animals, birds and other organisms, like insects which live in a natural habitat. India has a rich stock of flora and fauna. In India, there are more than 89,000 animal species, 1200 species of birds, making up 13% of the world total, 2500 species of fish making up 12% of the world’s stock. Amphibians, reptiles and mammals of India comprise between 5% and 8% of the world’s counts. India is the only country in the world that has both tigers and lions.
NBSE Class 9 Social Science Chapter 10: Map Reading (Including Drawing and Insertion)
When we think of maps we generally mean a two-dimensional representation of the earth or a part of it. In other words, maps are the representation of a geographical area, usually a portion of the Earth’s surface, drawn or printed on a flat surface. Maps have been made since ancient times. The Greeks and the Romans in ancient times first popularised map making.
NBSE Class 9 Social Science Chapter 11: Democracy
Democracy is a form of government where people choose their leaders. Unlike monarchy where the son of a king becomes the king and rule over the citizens, in democracy, anyone can become the leader. Abraham Lincoln defined democracy as a government by the people, of the people, and for the people.
NBSE Class 9 Social Science Chapter 12: Democracy in India
The concept of democracy is not new to India. These ideas have grown with history. Like every nation following democracy in the world, it has followed a historical path in India. The earliest political unit in India was that of the class. All members of a tribe were equal. The village community had its own assembly. Only the king was above this democratic body.
NBSE Class 9 Social Science Chapter 13: Electoral Politics in a Democracy
India follows the indirect form of democracy also known as representative democracy. In this form of democracy, we choose a local leader who represents us in the state assemblies and parliament and makes decisions on our behalf. We follow this kind of democracy because India has a large population and direct democracy is not possible.
NBSE Class 9 Social Science Chapter 14: Institutions of Parliamentary Democracy
In this chapter, you learn about a democratic government, particularly in the context of the Indian Parliament in a detailed manner. Running a country involves various activities like ensuring security, providing facilities for education and health, building infrastructure etc. To carry out these activities we need a government. A government has three organs: Legislature, executive, and the judiciary.
NBSE Class 9 Social Science Chapter 15: Citizens’ Rights in a Democracy
Rights are those conditions of life without which no man can seek to be himself at his best. They are freedoms and powers that are necessary for personality development and the common good. All major constitutions of the world guarantee to their citizens certain basic rights, enjoyed by all the citizens irrespective of their caste, creed, gender or religion. These rights give citizen protection against the state becoming autocratic and that is why they are called “Fundamental Rights.”
NBSE Class 9 Social Science Chapter 16: Economics
In this chapter, you will understand the concept of economy in a detailed manner. An economy can be defined as the sum total of all the economic activities of a country. All the activities which are related to production, distribution and consumption of wealth are called economic activities.
NBSE Class 9 Social Science Chapter 17: Population
Population is the total number of persons in a political or geographical area at a particular time. This chapter deals with the human population which is an important topic in the world. It is estimated that the world has about 753 crores people right now and out of these more than 121 crores are living in India. India is the second-most populous country in the world, the first one being China.
NBSE Class 9 Social Science Chapter 18: Poverty
The three major challenges that our economy is facing today ate Poverty, Unemployment and Price Rise. In our daily life, we come across many people who are poor. They could be landless labourers in villages or slum-dwellers in cities or daily wage earners and rickshaw pullers. They could also be beggars or child labourers. Roughly 27 crore people in India are poor.
NBSE Class 9 Social Science Chapter 19: People as a Resource
Human resource refers to human beings. Population is an asset for the economy rather than a liability. The population becomes human capital when there is an investment made in the form of education, training and medical care. Investment in human capital yields a return just like an investment in physical capital. Educated, skilled and healthier people generate higher productivity and income.
