Function of the skeletal system
The main function of the skeletal system is to protect and provide support our organs in our body.
disease #1
Arthritis is a disease that causes swelling and pain in people's joints. Arthritis is related to the skeletal system by people's joints not being able to move properly. You get arthritis by being in a certain environment that has a virus; it is not contagious. Signs of arthritis are if your bones don't move properly. There is no cure.
disease #2: osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is weakened bones due to loss of bone density.
Osteoporosis is related to the skeletal system by the bones in our body.
Older people who are generally smaller and have bones that are lighter are more likely to develop osteoporosis.
If you fracture a bone, have a poor diet, smoking and/or drinking too much, and etc. are ways of having osteoporosis.
Ways to not get osteoporosis are: stop smoking and/or drinking, drink lots of milk for strong bones, keep track of diet, sit up straight.
Disease #3
Scoliosis is an abnormal curving of the spine. Scoliosis is related to the human body because it has to do with the spine that keeps your back straight. Scoliosis is common with small children that there bones were not developed yet. Ways to know if you have scoliosis is if you have an "S" shaped back. and if you think you have scoliosis go see your doctor.

THe easiest
The easiest task we've done was looking for the research and information we needed to have.
The most difficult
The most difficult task to finish was this visual aid because we all need to work but it doesn't let us complete it all at the same time.
