Gunther touched a hot object and received a minor burn. How did the skeletal system help prevent further damage? The skeletal system helped him move his hand away from the hot object. The skeletal system made red blood cells to heal the injury. The skeletal system helped him sense that the object was hot. The skeletal system protected the nervous system so pain sensations could not be felt when he touched the hot object.

The skeletal system helped him move his his hand. Without bones, tendons that have received nerve signals would not be able to pull on bones, which move the muscles. Hope I could help. :)
