Functions and Major Organs
This is the name attributed to the 350 bones that keeps the rest of our body up. Although the amount of bones we
have at birth actually reduces between then and childhood to around 206, as some of our bones fuse together during
growth. Our bones are most important to us as they do 3 essential tasks :
a) The skeleton is the protection for our vital organs, including the brain, heart and lungs.
b) The skeleton makes us the shape that we are and supports our tissue otherwise we would just be a mass of
blood and flesh
