A clear and concise 15-page study sheet on the skeletal system which covers all topics typically taught in a full high school anatomy or AP anatomy & physiology unit on this topic. Specifically, this product covers the functions of skeletal system, axial and appendicular skeleton, types of bones, anatomy of bone, bone markings, bone structure, bone cells, compact bone, spongy bone, bone formation, bone growth, bone fracture repair, joints, structure of synovial joints, body movements, and diseases and disorders of the skeletal system. See below for further details.

This product is part of my Study Sheets line of resources, which aim to condense a large amount of curriculum content into a compact but detailed document, science CliffsNotes style! Study Sheet resources typically feature multiple pages of bullet point notes organized by subtopic, summary tables, and labeled diagrams to communicate information in a clear and concise way. Study sheets can be used by students before, during, and after a unit of study to review course material, clarify misconceptions, and study for assessments.

Study Sheet Contents:

  • What is the skeletal system
  • Main functions of the skeletal system (e.g. support, protection, movement, etc.)
  • Axial and appendicular skeleton
  • Main bones of the skeleton (with diagram)
  • Types of bones (long, short, flat, irregular, sesamoid)
  • General anatomy of a long bone (e.g. diaphysis, epiphysis, etc.)
  • Bone markings (articulations, processes, depressions)
  • Types of bone markings (e.g. condyle, crest, fossa, etc.)
  • Bone structure (e.g. extracellular matrix, fibers, cells, etc.)
  • Types of bone cells (osteoblasts, osteoclasts, osteocytes, osteogenic cells)
  • Compact or cortical bone structure
  • Spongy or cancellous bone structure
  • Intramembranous ossification
  • Endochondral ossification
  • Bone growth (longitudinal, appositional)
  • Bone modeling and bone remodeling
  • Fracture healing steps (e.g. hematoma formation, cartilaginous callus, etc.)
  • Joints
  • Types of joints (synarthroses, amphiarthroses, diarthroses)
  • Structure of diarthroses or synovial joints
  • Types of synovial joints (e.g. ball and socket, condyloid, gliding, etc.)
  • Types of body movements (e.g. flexion/extension, abduction/adduction, etc.)
  • Diseases and disorder of the skeletal system
  • Special topic: fractures (e.g. closed, open, greenstick, stress, etc.)
  • Special topic: arthritis (osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gouty arthritis)

Develop and use a model to illustrate the hierarchical organization of interacting systems that provide specific functions within multicellular organisms. Emphasis is on functions at the organism system level such as nutrient uptake, water delivery, and organism movement in response to neural stimuli. An example of an interacting system could be an artery depending on the proper function of elastic tissue and smooth muscle to regulate and deliver the proper amount of blood within the circulatory system. Assessment does not include interactions and functions at the molecular or chemical reaction level.
