    Poem

    Skeletal system

    is made up of bones,

    children has more than 300 bones

    and adults have 206 bones, that feel like stones.


    The skull has

    21 bones that are together

    and one bone

    that looks like a beggar.


    You have 12 pairs of ribs

    in your body

    the first seven pairs

    are the most dandy.


    The system is made up of many more

    but these are

    the conquistadors.
