Our bodies contain 206 skeletal bones. Without our skeleton, we would be a shapeless mass, just like a jellyfish. While most of our bones give our bodies structure and strength, many bones also serve another important purpose. These bodies protect our sensitive organs. For example, the scull protects our brain, while our rib cage and breast bone protect our lungs and heart.
This human body worksheet kindly provided by Scholastic is actually a description of the skeletal bones each of us has, you will surely find it useful when teaching a lesson on this topic.
