Hi monique,
I teach  Blender workshops for kids( aged12 between15)as well. 
first the kids learn something about differences of  3d projection( i.e. Orthographic and perspective ).
the next step is modeling some simple object like a house or a (simple car).The most problems what the kids have  during the learning process is the part of UV Mapping/ Texturing in Blender, because a little bit too abstract for them.
But they like all the ways of animation.
Monique, think it is a good Idea to create an internet platform especial for kids and would cooperate with you

Kind regards 
Ebi noack from cologne(germany)
