voice videos?

Hello everyone,
I am looking for any Dvds for my 7th/;8th grade choral students that explain the physiology of the voice. I see many out there, but it's hard to tell which ones would be engaging and age-appropriate. If any of you have any that you'd recommend, I'd be most appreciative. In addition to having the workings of the voice explained, if you know of any Dvds that also offer demonstrations of different vocal techniques, that would be helpful too. This is a new position for me after having taught elementary for most of my career- and I am gathering pertinent materials so I can offer as much as possible to these young singers.
All the best,

THANK YOU ALL so very much for taking the time to share your thoughts, ideas, materials and links. Your contributions are very helpful and I have already begun looking into them. John and Ed-thanks for your thoughts- and I do get what you are saying. The impression I am getting from the groups I inherited this year (great kids, inspiring talent) is that they don't have much of a background in even the simplest of anatomy and the workings of the voice. This is why I was looking for some educational materials beyond what I can lecture about, demonstrate or draw on the board.
John and others who welcomed me so warmly when I joined just last weekend---you are right--- this is a WONDERFUL community- and I will look forward to sharing whatever I can as topics come up.

All the best to everyone,
