What are Body movements?
The movement performed by the parts of the body to change their position, for example, cycling, dancing, walking, rotating an arm and many more are known as body movements.
Skeletal System of our body is responsible for all these movements.

The skeletal system is the Structural Framework of our body that is made up of bones. An adult human has 206 bones in their body.
A human baby has around 270 bones at birth. As we grow up some of these bones fuse together and finally, we have 206 bones as an adult.
