HOW THE SKELETAL SYSTEM WORKS
The Skeletal System is made of bones and it helps us move. The Skeletal System makes you stand up.
When you are born you have 300 bones and when you get older your bones start fusing together and then you only have 206 bones. Calcium makes your bones stronger.
The smallest bone in your body is in your ear. The longest bone is in your leg. When you break a bone your bone puts another layer of bone over the top of the broken bone so it can get better. Bones are very hard.
Teeth are not bones but they are part of the skeletal system. The skull is very important because it protects your brain.
The Skeletal System is very important because it protects all of your organs.
