    For teaching the first and second graders you could try introducing the concept with the story inch by inch By Leo Lionni. Then using inchworm shaped measuring tools ( cuisinaire makes them) to have students measure classroom objects. There is also a book called How big is a Foot? ( don't know the author.) This book introduces the need for a standard of measurement.
    Good luck!
