Bones:A person has a skeleton made up of bones. You have 270 bones in your body at birth. When you are an adult you now have 206 bones. They get smaller because they grow together. The bones provide support for our bodies & help form our face. Eat or drink dairy products because they all contain calcium,which helps bones harden and become strong. You can also exercise.
Muscles: They are all over your body. They do everything from pumping blood throughout your body to help lift your heavy backpack. You have more than 600 muscles in your body.
Tendons: Tendons are a band of tissue that connects to the bones. They act like a bridge between the bones. Eat fruit and vegetables because they have vitamin C that helps them.
Ligaments: Ligaments are tough bands of tissue that hold your bones together at your joints, like your elbow. They make it possible for you to bend & move in all the right ways. Eat fruit and vegetables because they have vitamin C that helps them.
Cartilage: In cartilage there is no blood vessels to pump blood. It provides structure, but not as much as bones. Cartilage is softer and more flexible than a bone.
