function of the bones skeleton
Function of the Bones & Skeleton
  • Support: a frame supports our bodies
  • Protection: Skull protects our brain, Ribs form a cage that shelters the heart, lungs, liver and spleen and the pelvis protects the bladder
  • Movement: Muscle attach to bones and move them
  • Storage: Fat, Calcium other materials used as needed.
  • Blood Production: In the middle of bones.
bone growth
Bone Growth
  • Bone growth consists of columns and multiplying cartilage.
  • Growth plates found in the middle of growing bones harden by the age of 25.
bone cells
Bone Cells
  • Osteoblasts – which makes new bone and help repair damage .
  • Osteocytes – carry nutrients and waste products to from blood vessels in bones .
  • Osteoclasts – brakes down bone and help to sculpt and shape it
caring for bone

partially moveable joints
Partially Moveable Joints

They move a little. They are linked by cartilage. The vertebrate in the spine moves in relation to the one above and below.
