1) explore and become familiar with the components, structures and functions of bones, as well as the major bones and skeletal structures found within the human body.

2) learn the names and locations of the major bones in the human body.

Students will be able to inspect the components, structures and functions of the bones in the human body (known as the skeletal system).
