Skeletal system

This system is so important because without it your back would be down into a curve and you wouldn't be able to walk.

  • Bones -  The most important organs in the skeletal system they store minerals and provide blood protection while producing red and white blood cells.
  • Ligaments-This organ provide stability to joints throughout the body during rest and active movement.
  • Cartilage-Supports the structure of many body parts and functions like the bones, ribs, ears and nose.
  • Tendons -provides us adhesive strength as it connects muscle to bone.

    The skeletal structure is divided into two groups named the axial skeleton and the appendicular skeleton. The axial skeleton consists of 80 bones which include the head and trunk of the human body. The appendicular skeleton is composed of over 126 bones in the lower region of the body.
