3 Human Skeleton 4 We need our bones so we can walk, jump, and dance. 4 We need our bones to protect the soft parts inside of us. 4 Without bones you’d be floppy like a beanbag. Without bones you’d be just a puddle of skin and guts on the floor. 4 health/skeletal/skeleton/in dex.weml health/skeletal/skeleton/in dex.weml
