This is a terrific lesson.  I like that the kids can work ahead or stay at the pace set by the instructor.  Another positive is that students have the opportunity to discover things for themselves.  Multiple means of representation (video, audio, written word) and assessment are used (multiple choice, hand-written, cut and paste).  The lesson is informative, yet fun.

Technical Remarks:

No broken links.  Perhaps you could change the address to the video link.  The site used is distracting.

Time spent reviewing site: 30 minutes
