Alabama Course of Study Alignments and/or Professional Development Standard Alignments:

SC (3)
6. Identify structures and functions of the muscular and skeletal systems of the human body.
SC (9-12) Anatomy and Physiology Elective
6. Identify bones that compose the skeletal system.
  • Identifying functions of the skeletal system
  • Identifying subdivisions of the skeleton as axial and appendicular skeletons
  • Classifying types of joints according to their movement
  • Identifying the four bone types
  • Identifying various types of skeletal system disorders
  • Examples: fractures, arthritis
