Skeleton

Have any skeletons in your closet? At least you’ve got one in your body! In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby take a closer look at the human skeleton and how it works. You’ll learn why your head is so hard and what body parts form your skeleton. You’ll find out some of the functions of your bones and what makes them so useful. And finally, you’ll discover what’s inside your bones, and the role they play in making blood. You’ll never wonder what you’d be like without a skeleton again. Just remember: Being hard-headed is a good thing!
