Transcript of The skeletal system and muscles

Our skeleton is made of more than 200 bones. Calcium and other minerals make the bone strong but slightly flexible. Bone is a living tissue with a blood supply. It is constantly being dissolved and formed, and it can repair itself if a bone is broken.
What does it do?
The skeleton has four main functions:

1. To support the body
2. To protect some of the vital organs of the body
3. To help the body move
4. To make blood cells
