Synarthroses which are immovable, amphiarthroses which are slightly moveable and then finally diarthroses which move freely. Also, the identification of the three structural categories of joints; fibrous, cartilaginous and the synovial. After a thorough review of the classifications of joints I will be able to identify and demonstrate various body movements, the relationship between bones, ligaments, and tendons. In terms of safety….there really isn’t much to worry about in this lab. Make sure not to be to rough with Mr. Skeleton and make sure to wear the appropriate safety gear and take precaution with the dissection tools. Wash hands thoroughly after dissection.
