Presentation Transcript
there are 206 bones in the human body

Your skeletal system has many functions…

  • Provides support for the body
  • Protects internal tissues and organs from damage
  • Acts as the framework for attached muscles
  • Allows movement of limbs and digits
  • Produces new red and white blood cells
  • Stores fat and minerals (calcium and phosphorus)
There are 206 bones in the human body.

  • Key terms from the clip: Bone Marrow, Compact Bone, Spongy Bone
  • Ossification: the process by which bone is formed, renewed, and repaired.
Bone Structure
types of bones

Bones are categorized by their shape.

  • Shapes include long bones, short bones, flat bones, and irregular bones.

Examples:

Humerus and Femur - Long Bones

Rib, Skull, Sternum – Flat Bones

Wrist, Carpals (hands), Tarsals (feet)– Short Bones

Vertebrae and Hip – Irregular Bones

Types of Bones
connective tissue

Cartilage: a strong, flexible connective tissue that can act as a cushion between bones to reduce friction or as a flexible structure for soft parts of the body.

  • Ligament: a band of fibrous, slightly elastic connective tissues that attaches one bone to another. Ligaments attach to bones to make joints.
  • Tendon: a fibrous cord that attaches muscle to the bone. Also holds joints together.
Connective Tissue
joints

Joints: Are points at which bones meet.

Different Types of Joints:

Flexible joints include ball and socket, hinge, pivot, and ellipsoidal joints

Examples:

Hinge joint – Elbow and Knee

Ball and Socket – Hip

Pivot – Rotation of the skull

Ellipsoidal - Wrist
