There are several modules here with many activities included. The "jump-rope generator" (activity 3) is a common demonstration for electromagnetic induction and the soda-bottle magnetometer (activity 17) is a nice take-home for students.
Instructional time and which benchmark(s) are addressed will vary depending on the module.
The "teacher feedback" button on the site might be non-functional.
