All About Electric Motors
Students study the basic principles of electric motors and explore everyday uses. They build a working model of an electric motor for classroom use, using an inexpensive kit. Then, they work as an "engineering" team to determine the changes they would need to make to the motor to adapt it to power a hairdryer.

How to Build an Electric Motor
Sixth graders build a working motor. In this lesson on motors, 6th graders use an inquiry method of learning to discover how to create a working electric motor with the supplies given to them. The teacher will guide them as needed. Students integrate math and language arts by writing a lab report and graphing how many times their motor turns in thirty seconds.
