Body parts that start with B

Parts of your body. Not all of these are human parts - people don't have tails and wings but they still qualify as body parts!

Bis forBlood

Blood is a red liquid that your heart pumps through your entire body. Blood carries all the nutrients that your body needs to live and grow. Normally you can never see your blood as it is inside you, but when you have an accident, cut yourself and bleed you can see your blood. However, not all creatures have red blood. Some marine creatures such as horseshoe crabs and many insects have green blood, which contains the copper-based cyanoglobin rather than the red iron-based haemoglobin.

Bis forBone

Bones are found inside your body. They are very hard. All the bones in your body together are called the skeleton. Doctors can see your bones by taking an xray.

Bis forBrain

Your brain is inside your head, protected by your skull. All creatures that have a skeleton have a brain inside their head. Your brain controls everything that goes on inside your body, like your breathing, digestion and heartbeat. Your brain is what controls how you move your arms and legs to move, and controls talking and thinking.
