Hand bones - metacarpals

We just learned about the Carpal Wrist Bones.

The bones in your hand are called your metacarpals.

If you feel in your hand, you can feel the long thin bones going out toward each knuckle and finger.
(from: wikipedia - hand)

The metacarpal bones are numbered one through five, starting with your thumb bone and going toward your pinky.
