  Skeletal System  Skeletal System The skeletal system includes all of the bones and joints in the body. Each bone is a complex living organ that is made up of many cells, protein fibers, and minerals. The skeleton acts as a scaffold by providing support and protection for the soft tissues that make up the rest of the body. The skeletal system also provides attachment points for muscles to allow movements at the joints. New blood cells are produced by the red bone marrow inside of our bones. Bones act as the body’s  warehouse for calcium, iron, and energy in the form of fat. Finally, the skeleton grows throughout childhood and provides a framework for the rest of the   body to grow along with it.  5 Functions of the Skeletal System 1. Movement:  Skeletal system provides points of attachment for muscles. Your legs and arms move when the muscles pull on the bones. 2.
