The skeletal system
The framework of the body, consisting of bones and other connective tissues, which protects and supports the body tissues and internal organs.
The human skeleton contains 206 bones, six of which are the tiny bones of the middle ear (three in each ear) that function in hearingSupport
The main job of the skeleton is to provide support for our body. Without your skeleton your body would collapse into a heap. Your skeleton is strong but light. Without bones you'd be just a puddle of skin and guts on the floor.
Bones provide the structure for muscles to attach so that our bodies are able to move.Tendons are tough inelastic bands that hold attach muscle to bone.
