How The Systems Work Together:- The Skeletal System works with the muscular system by providing support to the muscle when they are contracting and allowing the muscles to move as they should.-The Circulatory System uses the bone marrow to help produce red and white blood cells.

Structure of the Skeletal System

MAJOR FUNCTIONS-Give shape to the body and determines height, weight, and other things like size of body parts-Provides support and keeps organs in their designated place -Helps create body movement-Protects vital organs from damage -Bones store minerals that are needed for body functions as well as producing red blood cells by bone marrow

Interesting Facts-There are 206 individual bones that make up the skeletal system-Our bones are made up of complex, living tissues and are also made up of water-Bones are catagorized by there shapes: long bones, short bones, flat bones, and irregular bones-The composition and structure of our bones make them extremely strong and resilient compared to their relitavely light weight
