2Vertebral Column Made up of 33 bones Cervical Vertebrae: First 7 Form the neck & support the head.C-1 is called the atlas as it allows the head to nod “yes”.C-2 is called the axis as it allows the head to shake “no”.
3Thoracic Vertebrae: Second 12 Anchor the ribcageLarger than the cervical vertebraeIncrease in size inferiorly.Lumbar Vertebrae: Third 5Largest set of vertebraeSupport weightAllow attachment of back muscles.

8Clavicle Makes up the shoulder girdle. Connects the sternum to the scapula.Medial 2/3rd of shaft is convex anteriorlyLateral 1/3rd is flat & concave anteriorly.Helps to form two joints:Sternoclavicular JointAcromioclavicular Joint
16Ulna Longer of the two forearm bones Has “pipe wrench” appearance; or “U” for “ulna”Olecranon ProcessCoronoid ProcessRadial Notch
17Hand Phalanges (Proximal, Middle, Distal) Each phalange is a miniature long bone.Wider at the base (proximal end) & smaller at the head (distal end).Thumb has 2 phalanges; all other digits have 3 phalanges.
18MetacarpalsHeads are the distal ends that articulate with the phalanges (knuckles).Shafts are concave on medial & lateral sides to allow for muscle attachment.
