Information for Teachers
· Bones are hard structures of our body. A baby has about 300 bones at birth. These bones fuse to form 206 bones in adult. Bones protect our internal soft organs and also help us to move.
Bone stores crucial nutrients, minerals, and lipids and produces blood cells that nourish the body and play a vital role in protecting the body against infection. All these functions make the approximately 206 bones of the human body an organ that is essential to our daily existence Material/ Resources
