My Dad put me right on this one when I was about 11. It's a big help to start that way of thinking when you're young.

The problem with doing an experiment to prove it is that they'd just say "Use more oil" or "just gear it up a bit".

I dunno. The idea is that their minds are open and receptive. When they actually see the resistance a generator puts on a spinning wheel, it will be glaringly obvious that the battery is under heavier load to power that generator. I think it'd be a lesson they'd remember forever.
