We make a lot of hooks in the shop at Hancock Shaker Village. It is a fast enough demo that most kids will stay focused. As mentioned it shows many operations: drawing out, forming a small scroll, twisting, cutoff hardy, and the post drill. We also make drive hooks instead of a nail hole sometimes. If we get a group that wants to get their moneys worth, we'll break out the nail header and make them some nails to give them.
