The Skeletal System
By: Rhea & Lance
Parts of The Skeletal System
Ribs: These 12 pairs of bones wrap around the body to protect organs such as the heart and the lungs.
Humerus: This bone is the main bone of the upper arm. It allows you to push and pull objects
Radius & Ulna: The lower arm consists of these 2 bones which help in lower arm movement.
Spine: The spine has 26 bones that work together to support the back and protect the spinal cord from injury.
Pelvis & Leg Bones: The bones of the pelvis provide a strong connection point for the joints of the leg. In the leg, the femur connects to the fibula and tibia which are the largest bones in the body, and they support weight and movement.

How can I keep this system healthy?
You can keep this system healthy by eating calcium-rich foods such as milk, cheese, broccoli and salmon. You should also eat foods that have vitamin D in it like eggs or tuna. It is also good to exercise 30 minutes a day to maintain your strength because building muscle helps by making your bones stronger.
