27 Bone StructureA thin, tough membrane covers all of the bone except the endsBlood vessels and nerves enter and leave the bone through the outer membrane
28 Bone Structure Compact bone layer just below the membrane Hard and dense but not solidContains small canals for blood vessels and nerves
29 Bone Structure Spongy bone Layer just below the compact bone Has small spaces within itCan also be found at the end of bonesLightweight but strong
30 Bone Structure Marrow Soft connective tissue Two types: red and yellow Red marrow – produces blood cellsYellow marrow – stores fat for energy reserve
32 CHECK POINTQ. What does red marrow do?A. Produces blood cells.
33 CHECK POINTQ. What does yellow marrow do?A. Stores fat for energy.
