Bones and joints. Bones are made up of strong, hard materials. They have different shapes and sizes. The longest bone is the femur and is found in the hip, the smallest bones are in the ears. Inside some bones is a jelly-like substance called marrow. When our bones grow we grow. We get taller when our bones grow. Where two bones meet is called joint.
