This site from the Exploratorium provides a simple demonstration of the interaction between a moving magnet and its induced electromagnetic field. As the magnet is dropped down a metallic tube, it induces eddy currents that oppose its fall. The site contains a materials list, basic procedures for the activity, and an explanation of what happens in terms of the electric and magnetic fields produced.
