  • 4. Questions to discuss in partner voices! Q: What do you think a joint is? A: A joint is where two bones meet. It can be movable or fixed. Q: Why do you think we have joints? A: If we did not have joints we would find simple tasks like eating very difficult. Any movement needing bending would be impossible!!!!
  • 5. Where in our body do we find movable joints? Did you locate the joints in our body correctly?
  • 6. Do you think that these joints all work in the same way?
    • We actually have three main types of movable joints:
    • A hinge joint
    • 2) A ball and socket joint
    • 3) A gliding joint
  • 7. Hinge joint Your toes use hinge joints (back-and-forth movements like hinges on a door). Elbows , knees and fingers also have these types of joints. Hinge joints are classified as a movable joint .
  • 8. Ball and socket joint The hips and shoulders contain ball-and-socket joints In a ball-and-socket joint, one bone has a rounded end that fits into a cuplike cavity on another bone. This provides a wider range of movement. Thus, your hips and shoulders can swing in almost any direction .
  • 9. Gliding joint The joints between the vertebrae are called gliding joints , where one part of a bone slides over another bone.
