Hi Samantha - The video camera is a Flip Cam (cost about $129), and it the EASIEST camera in the world to use. I got mine from Scholastic, but I bet you could easily get funded for one on Donorschoose. The students do all the editing (I wouldn't begin to know how!), but they all seemed to be pretty adept at using it. I would definitely recommend this exercise - the kids REALLY learn the words, and, most importantly, it's clear they integrate the words into their own vocabulary!
