Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but 'maybe' the answer to your question is joints?!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's okay, the skeletal system includes your bones, tendons and ligaments. And yep, joints too, but joints don't really have anything to do with muscles. However tendons and ligaments do!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well actually I made a mistake, lol. Tendons are the only ones that really involve muscles and bones. Ligaments have to do with bones.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah, the bones at the joints are held together by ligaments right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well technically joints are just where two pieces of bones fit into each other, they kind of connect. There are certain types of joints that have ligaments...moveable joints for example. But for this question the thing you should focus on are tendons.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yep, I think you should include how tendons work though..like include a definition of tendons in your answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2If you want to understand how muscles cooperate with the skeletal system, you need to think about what would happen if the muscles weren't attached to anything. Would we still be able to move?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Right. If they just got shorter and longer without pulling anything, that wouldn't be very useful. So certain types of muscles, the skeletal muscles are actually attached to the skeleton via tendons, and they're what allow you to move.
