Step One: Development of Ossification Center-Osteoblasts secrete organic extracellular matrix Step Two: Calcification-Calcium and other mineral salts are deposited and extracellular matrix calcifies (hardens). Step Three: Formation of Trabeculae-Extracellular matrix develops into trabeculae that fuse to form spongy bone Step Four: Development of the Periosteum-Mesenchyme at the periphery of the bone develops into the periosteum. The flat bones of the skull and parts of the mandible and clavicle are formed by Intramembranous Ossification
