    Has anyone else checked the copyright status and conditions of use for the texts in question?
    Or even for the book?

    It's always worth checking.
    Sometimes for instance copyright is waived for limited educational purposes.
    Sometimes it isn't

    Choose another text. Or purchase sufficient copies. Ask parents to source copies. Ask students to share copies (as most of us experienced at school).

    There is a guide for teachers explaining exceptions to Copyright in education and teaching.

    The video on Youtube is probably in violation of the copyright though.

    As an aside, I think it is important to talk about copyright with children from an early age, as it's so easy to take images and text from the Web. Knowing when they can use things (such as things with a Creative Commons Licence) and can't will help them in the long run.

    and an example of what is permitted by schools holding a relevant photocopying licence:

    Permission is granted under the CLA Licence
    If your school owns the original publication, you can copy or display:
    • one complete chapter from a book
    • one short story or poem not exceeding 10 pages in length from an anthology
    • or 5% of the publication, if greater than the above
    If you want to copy outside of these terms, and there are no exceptions, you will need to contact the publisher directly to ask permission to do so.

    Somebody needs to talk about it with the teachers first.
