Measuring Penny is a great book to read that teaches many equivalencies. Then, we bring in stuffed animals to measure their arms, legs,head, etc.

Students eat a Twizzler in 12 bites to remember 12 inches equals one foot.

Take a length of yarn. Let students hold both ends. Fold it in half like you're folding a sheet. Tie another color of yarn like a flag where the fold is. Fold again. Tie flags. When it is opened up, the flag's mark 1/4, 1/2, and 3/4.
