I'l second WeVideo (come see my presentation at Dynamic Landscapes!)
although MovieMaker could still be accessible at that grade level. The new
version (WMM Live 2012) is better than the XP verison. Animoto Lite (free)
limits video to 30 seconds but Educators can apply for an upgrade... not
sure about students?

True: HD footage presents storage issues and MovieMaker is also finicky
about file locations (pretty much needs to be local on ONE machine)

Flip footage requires a codec on older Windows machines, but installing the
Flip software (NOT using it - it's very poor) will install the codecs.
QuickTime on Mac recognizes it without installation. People also tend to
think that the Flip software is necessary in order to download footage
(since it opens automatically,) but the cameras can be browsed on Mac or
Windows just like any other USB drive.
