The human skeleton has various functions or jobs.

Imagine if we didn't have a skeleton.  What problems would we face?
Think of the different functions of our skeleton.
Can you write them down. How will you remember these functions?
You need to learn the names of the skeleton.  Common names are the names we often use like knee cap, lower leg, breast bone etc.
You also need to know the scientific names.  The knee cap is the patella, sternum is the breast bone, scapula is the shoulder blade etc.
Use the diagram under resources to help you learn the correct scientific names for your bones.
Start of trying to learn 5 scientific names and then build on this number.  Go over the bones you have learnt regularly and you will soon find that you are remembering the names.
If there are some bones you are having difficulty remembering then make some flash cards to help you.  Carry the cards around and when you have a spare few moments look at them.
