Joint Scavenger Hunt

By: Rose & Judith

Ball and socket

In a ball-and-socket joint, the ball-shaped end of one bone fits into a cup-shaped cavity in another, allowing movement in all directions.All these pictures represent the ball and socket because they can move in a circular motion that is attached to a holder .

Pivot

In a pivot joint, one bone rotates within a collar formed by another. Theses photos represent pivot because it can be moved to an extend such as a right angle than being to move a little bit

Hinge

Hinge joints are formed between two or more bones where the bones can only move along one axis to flex or extend.These pictures represent the hinge joint because it can be moved to an extend such as moving back and forth.

Gliding

These pictures represent Gliding joints because they simulate bones that glide past one another in any direction along the plane of the joint up and down, left and right, and diagonally.
