Teenager wanting to learn photography

My daughter has expressed an interest in photography, wanting to learn how to take photographs and has asked 'Santa' this year for equipment.

With this in mind I'm in the market for a used 60D or 7D, which body I purchase will depend on price. My question is which lens of the 3 would you recommend?

Just go on the cheap and save my hard earned money if this doesn't pan out?

YONGNUO YN35mm F2 Lens ~ $50 used

Go for quality?

Canon EF 40mm F2.8 Lens ~ $125 Canon refurbished or $100 used. I could also add this lens to my personal collection since my overlapping lens is an F4 only.

Or open up my wallet slightly and go for versatility?

Tamron SP AF 17-50mm F/2.8 XR Di II LD Aspherical (IF) Lens ~ $200 used.

The reason why I'm focusing on lenses less than 50mm is due to the camera body crop factor. Suggestions?
