Skeletal Fun Facts

  • There are 206 bones in the human body.
  • Bones are hard, but not that heavy.
  • Your bones hold your body upright and give it shape.
  • Bones protect your organs.  Your skull protects your brain and your ribs protect your heart and lungs.
  • The 3 smallest bones in your body are in your ear.  Without them, you wouldn’t be able to hear.
  • The largest bone in your body is in your leg. It is called the Femur.
  • Your bones are joined together at joints (like your knee and elbow). Joints let your bones (and body) move.
  • The bone broken most often is the Clavicle (or collar bone). This bone connects the arms to the body.
  • Your “funny bone” isn’t actually a bone at all! When you hit your elbow in just the right spot, you get that “funny” feeling. That is your ulnar nerve hitting against your humerus bone!!
