The Bones are listed in reverse order. Start at the bottom (Cranium) and work your way up to phalanges.

Phalanges (Toes. The fingers and the toes have the same name.)

Meta tarsals (distal to the tarsals these bones are similar to the meta carpals of the hands.)

Tarsals ( Tarsals of the foot are the same as the carpals for the hands. They are located just in front of the tibia on the foot.)

Calcaneus (heel bone)

Fibula (located behind (posterior) the tibia. It is the bone underneath (deep) to the calf muscles.)

Tibia (Anterior lower leg bone. This is the bone on the chin that you can touch.)

Patella (Knee cap)

Femur (This is the longest bone in the human body. The thigh bone connects to the pelvic gridle by a ball and socket joint and extends to the middle leg.)

Pelvis (Pelvic gridle. This bone is centrally located in the body connecting the upper torso and lower limbs (legs). It is an irregular shaped bone that is the transition between the spine and the femurs.)


Phalanges (Fingers. The singular form of the word is phalanx. There are a total of 14 phalanges in each hand. Three phalanges for each finger and two for the thumb.)

Metacarpals (There are five metacarpals in each hand. They assist in the range of motion of the fingers. The metacarpals distal (lower than) the carpals while standing in anatomical position.)

Carpals (Their are eight carpals in the each hand. The carpals are located between the metacarpals and the ulna and radius. Carpals help give the wrist more freedom and range of motion as well as assiting the powerful flexors and extensors of the forearm)

Radius (Your lateral, which is farthest away from your mid-line standing in anatomical position, forearm bone. This bone is on the thumb side of your lower arm)

Ulna (Your medial, which is closest to your mid-line standing in anatomical position,  forearm bone. This bone is on the pinky finger side of your lower arm.)

Humerous (Upper arm bone…AKA the ‘funny bone’)

Thoracic Vertebrae (Fancy word for the vertebrae connected to your rib cage)

Vertebrae (Your spine is made up of 24 vertebrae)

Sternum (Middle of your chest)

Scapula (Your shoulder blades)

Clavicle (Collar bone)

Mandible (Lower jaw bone)

Cranium (Skull bone)
