Skeletal System
By Sharon Fabian

1     A skeleton is good for scaring people on Halloween, but it does have other uses too. Your skeleton is what keeps you standing tall. Without your skeleton, you would just be a puddle of skin and stuff on the floor. Not a pretty sight! Your skeleton also protects your most important insides, like your heart, lungs, and brain.
2     Here are some of the main parts of your skeleton, starting at the top.
Skull--a built-in helmet for your brain
4     spinal column--backbone, made up of vertebrae
5     ribs--surround your heart and lungs
6     sternum--connects some of your ribs in front
7     pelvis--protects digestive and reproductive organs
8     humerus, ulna, and radius--arm bones
