  1. The bones of the anterior skeleton • Move the mouse over different regions of the skeleton, to see the names of the highlighted bones. Loughborough College (c)

  2. Ulna • The ulna is the other long bone in the lower part of the arm. It is the bottom bone on the same side as the little finger. Loughborough College (c)

  3. Tibia • The tibia is also known as the shin bone and is one of the long bones in the lower part of the leg. It is the inside bone, towards the front of the leg. Loughborough College (c)

  4. Sternum • The sternum is also known as the breast bone. It is found in the middle of the chest and supports some of the ribs. Loughborough College (c)

  5. Ribs • The rib cage is made from 12 pairs of ribs and protects the heart and lungs. 7 pairs of these attach to the sternum, 3 pairs attach to the 7th rib and the last 2 pairs do not attach to anything other than a part of the vertebrae. Loughborough College (c)

  6. Radius • The radius is one of the long bones in the lower part of the arm. It is the top bone on the same side as the thumb. Loughborough College (c)

  7. Patella (Knee Cap) • The patella is also known as the knee cap. It is one of the three bones, along with the tibia and femur, which form the knee joint. Loughborough College (c)

  8. Humerus • The humerus is the long bone in the upper arm part of the arm. Loughborough College (c)

  9. Fibula • The fibula is the other long bone in the lower part of the leg. It is the outside bone, towards the back of the leg. Loughborough College (c)

  10. Femur • The femur is the long bone in the upper part of the leg. Loughborough College (c)

  11. Clavicle • The clavicle is also known as the collar bone. It is attached to the top of the sternum and forms part of the shoulder girdle. Loughborough College (c)

  12. Skull • The skull is made from 28 bones which are joined together by fibres. 8 of these bones form the cranium (which protects the brain), 14 bones form the face (eye sockets, cheek, nose and jaw) and 6 bones form the middle ear. Loughborough College (c)

  13. Vertebral column • The vertebral column is also known as the spine or spinal column. It is made up of 33 bones. The vertebral column protects the spinal cord, supports the body and head, and provides a place for the ribs and muscles of the back to attach. Loughborough College (c)

  14. Scapula • The scapula is also known as the shoulder blade. It connects the humerus (upper arm) to the clavicle (collar bone). Loughborough College (c)

  15. Pelvis • The pelvis is also called the pelvic girdle or the hip girdle. It supports the weight of the body from the vertebral column and protects and supports the lower organs, including the urinary bladder and the reproductive organs. Loughborough College (c)
