Skeleton experiment

We got out the salt dough yesterday to find out why we have skeletons :)
First we all made little people with no bones, but guess what?

They kept toppling over!
So then we tried again and this time we used cocktail sticks as pretend bones inside our little people.

And hurrah! They stand up (they weren't much good at flexing though)!
So why do we have skeletons? What would happen if we had no bones??
Lamb answers in mime: tumbling to the floor in a heap,
and Moo says 'FALL OVER!'.
