This is a very informative video from The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) about wind power, how it works, the benefits, and its future.  There is closed captioning, which is great because, for younger students, this will be paused throughout for explanations/discussions.  Although this was made for adults, there is a very basic explanation of how wind mills turn the wind into energy.  (06:45)
