- The Skeletal System is made up of the 206 bones that hold the body up. It is amazing that the body can direct muscles to move all those parts around. It is one thing to raise an arm up and down…but then think about what a soccer player does or a ballet dancer or someone climbing a cell tower to repair damage from a storm. Really, the human body is so amazing. The books and websites listed below will help you learn a lot more about the skeletal system.
