Skeletal system: The hard framework of body, provided with the bones is called skeleton. It gives shape and strength to the body. It also protects the soft, inner organs of the body such as heart and lungs. It also helps in movement and locomotion.
Types of skeletons are: axial (e.g. skull, facial region, sense capsules) and appendicular (e.g. shoulder girdle, bones of fore limbs, pelvic girdle, bones of hind limbs)
joints -Joints occur wherever two bones meet. The bones are held together by strong tissues called ligaments.
Types of joints are:
• Immovable joints or Fixed joints
• Movable joints
• Partially movable.
Along with bones, muscles also play an important role in movement and locomotion
