Every born has an skeleton. It's what gives you the shape you are. This is made of lots an lots of bones, an amazing two hundred and six Most of these are on the hands and the feet. This is the skeleton system, what's up? Yes please, I always wander what the skeleton system is made up of? The skeleton system is what keeps your body in shape, protects your wider organs such as the heart and the brain and the lungs and enables you to move. Let me tell you something more about those now. When you were born a tiny weeny baby you had tiny hands, tiny feet and tiny everything. Slow as you grew older everything became a bit bigger including your bones. These eventually fuse or grow together to find the 206 bones that adults have. By the time you’re about 25 this process will be complete. After this happens there can be no more growth, these bones are as big as they will ever be. All of these bones make up a skeleton. Let’s take a look at some of the major bones starting at the top. The skull. The skull is the bony section of the head. The skull protects the brain and provides attachment for the muscles of the head and the neck. The cervical vertebrae, these are seven vertebrae of the spine that form the connection to the skull and the neck. The clavicle, the clavicle is the collarbone bone. The sternum. The sternum is the breast bone a long, narrow flat bone that forms the center of the front of the chest. The humerus, the humerus is the long bone in the upper arm that runs from the shoulder to the elbow. The vertebral column or spine. The spine is a column of bone and cartilage that extends from the base of the skull to the pelvis. The spine is made up of approximately 33 bones called the vertebrae, it encloses and protects the spinal cord and supports the trunk of the body and the head. The ribs, ribs are flat curved bones that form the framework of the chest and they make up a cage that protects the heart and lungs. There are 12 pairs of ribs, each joined at the back of the cage to vertebrate and the spine. The radius, the radius is the shorter of the two forearm bones, the ulna, The ulna is the longer of the two bones of the forearm. The pelvis, the pelvis is a symmetrical ring of bones at the base of the spine. . It also provides support for the rest of the body about it. It protects abdominal organs such as the bladder, the rectum and, in women, the uterus. The femur, the femur is the thigh bone, the longest bone in the body The patella, the patella or knee cap is a triangular shaped bone at the front of the knee joint. The tibia, it is also called the shin bone. The tibia is the inner and thicker of the two long bones of the lower leg. The fibula, the fibula or the calf bone is the outer and thinner of the two long bones of the lower leg. And phalanges, the phalanges are the small bones that make up the fingers and the toes. Taking care of bones Your bones held you out every day, so make sure you take real good care of them. Here are some tips: Drink milk and eat other dairy products. Strengthen your skeleton by drinking milk and eating other dairy products like low-fat cheese or frozen yogurt. They all contain calcium which helps bones harder and become really strong. Be active.
