  • 4. Bone Marrow
    Soft tissue inside the cavities within bones.
  • 5. Cartilage

  • 8. Ligament

  • 9. Key Concept
    The skeleton supports the body, protects internal organs, provides for movement, stores mineral reserves, and provides a site for blood cell formation.
  • 10. Key Concept
    Bones are a solid network of living cells and protein fibers that are surrounded by deposits of calcium salts.
