1 Hover over the diagram for information on that part Functions of the Skeleton Please start this in slide show mode for the full interactivity

2 Hover over the diagram for information on that part Hover over a hexagon for more information Functions Support Protection Movement Fat and Mineral storage Produce blood cells

3 Hover over the diagram for information on that part Support Bones provide shape and support the framework of the body, as most of the muscles are attached to them. Without this structural framework we would be like a piece of jelly! Functions Support Protection Movement Fat and Mineral storage Produce blood cells

4 Hover over the diagram for information on that part Protection Functions Support Protection Movement Fat and Mineral storage Produce blood cells Bones provide protection for many of our internal organs, for example the ribs protect our heart and lungs, the skull protects our brain, and the vertebrae protect our spinal cord.

5 Hover over the diagram for information on that part Movement Functions Support Protection Movement Fat and Mineral storage Produce blood cells Our bones end in joints which allow us to move. When the muscles that are attached to our skeleton contract, they pull on the bones to cause movement at the joint.

6 Hover over the diagram for information on that part Red and white blood cell production Functions Support Protection Movement Fat and Mineral storage Produce blood cells Both red and white blood cells are produced in our bone marrow. Red blood cells transport oxygen and carbon dioxide around the body and white blood cells help protect the body from infection.

7 Hover over the diagram for information on that part Storage of fats and minerals Functions Support Protection Movement Fat and Mineral storage Produce blood cells Bones help to store minerals including calcium and phosphorus, both of which play an important role in the strength of bones.
