How does the human skeleton work?
The skeleton is the structure that gives a body its shape.
Mammals (including humans), birds, fish, reptiles and amphibians all have skeletons made from bones.
Some of our bones hold us upright.
Others protect our organs:
Other bones help us move.
Bones can't move on their own. They are moved by muscles.
When a muscle tightens it pulls the bones attached to it into a new position.
Children have more bones than adults!
When you are born you have around 270 bones. As you get older some of these join together so they don't count as separate bones.
Adults have around 206 bones.
