Hello Class! Today we will be learning about the Skeletal System
So please ask me some questions about it
What type of cells, tissues are apart of the skeletal system and whats the primary organ?
The Skeletal System consist of bones and connective tissues, including cartilage, tendon, and ligaments.
Are there certain functions of the skeletal system?
Support provides a framework to support the organs and tissues of the body. Protection - It protects our internal organs. The skull protects the brain; the thorax (sternum, ribs and spine) protects the heart, lungs and other viscera (organs within the thorax).
Yes, There are 4 major functions in the skeletal system which are, support, protection, movement, and supply & storage
Movement provides a framework for muscles to attach. Then when the muscles contract they pull on the bones of the skeleton, which act like levers to create movement. Supply & Storage - The bones that make up the skeleton are a source of both red blood cells (which transport oxygen) and white blood cells (which fight infection), which are formed within the bone marrow.
What is a disease that is apart of the skeletal system?
A disease that occurs in the skeletal system is called Osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is when bones become fragile and prone to fracture.
One more question, then we will wrap up
What are ways that we can keep our skeletal system healthy?
Well 2 ways we can keep are skeletal system healthy is to eat a lot of vegetables. Vegetables are the best source of Vitamin C, which stimulates production of bone-forming cells and start weight-bearing exercises. They help keep bones strong and they work against gravity.
