Spinal Nerve

We just learned about the Foramen Magnum.

A while back we learned about the bones in your back called the vertebrae.
These are the bones that help protect your spinal cord.
Inside each of these bones are some nerves called Spinal Nerves.

The main spinal cord goes down the middle, and the spinal nerves come out from the sides and go out to all parts of the body.
