  •  We learned the names of the bones making up the axial and appendicular portions of the skeleton  We considered the tissues of the bones and joints (compact bone, spongy bone, cartilage, fibrous connective tissue)  We learned the names of various muscles and how they operate when we intentionally move our bones  We can't understand how skeletal muscles contract and move the bones until we study skeletal muscles at the cellular level  A muscle cell is suited to its task because it contains contractile organelles called myofibrils
