Learning time​

Kids learn by watching short, engaging video lessons.

Touch the top of your head. Do you feel the hard part? What's that? That's your skull. Your skull is a set of bones that protect your brain and make up your facial structure. There are 22 flat bones in your skull and there are another six bones in your ears. In fact, the smallest bone in the human body is inside your ear. It's called the stirrup. The bones surrounding your brain are called the cranium. The cranium is made-up of eight bones. These eight bones fit together like a piece of a jigsaw puzzle. Where they meet and join together is called a suture. The bones in the skull don't move except for one. Could you think what it might be? Mine is moving right now. Yes, it's your jaw. The jaw is the only moving bone in the skull.
