Bones and the Skeletal System This worksheet will give you a chance to take a look at (at least as a picture or diagram) the bones, bone structures, and functional groupings of bones. Carefully/accurately answer the questions, then use this worksheet as a guide to answer the questions in the Skeleton and Bones Lab Quiz. Bone structure and classification: Complete the following statements. (Note: Questions 1-6 pertain to bone classification by shape.) 1. A bone that is platelike is classified as a(an) (flat) bone. 2. The bones of the wrist are examples of (short) bones. 3. The bone of the thigh is an example of a(an) (long) bone. 4. Vertebrae are examples of (irregular) bones. 5. The patella (kneecap) is an example of a large bone. false 6. The bones of the skull that form a protective covering of the brain are examples of (flat) bones. 7. Distinguish between the epiphysis and the diaphysis of a long bone. (epiphysis is the part of the bone that joins with the other bones and diaphysis is the shaft of the bone) 8. Describe where cartilage is found on the surface of a long bone. (on the epiphysis) 9. Describe where dense connective tissue is found on the surface of a long bone. (on the periosteum) 10. Distinguish between the periosteum and the endosteum. (peirosteum is the outside covering of the bone and endosteum is the inside covering of the bone) Complete the following: 1. What are the differences between the structure of compact bone and spongy bone? (compact bone is solid, whereas the spongy bone has central canals in which the cone cells do not aggregate) 2. How are these structural differences related to the locations and functions of these two types of bone? (compact bones are areas which support weight and spongy bone is the area which connects and is not the strongest) 3. From your observations, how does the marrow in the medullary cavity compare with the marrow in the spaces of the spongy bone? (marrow in the medullary cavity is continuous, whereas in the spongy bone it is spread through the empty spaces of the spongy bone.) Organization of the skeleton Complete the following statements: 1. The extra bones that sometimes develop between the flat bones of the skull are called ( ) . 2. Small bones occurring in some tendons are called ( ) bones. 3. The cranium and facial bones compose the
