Kick off a “belt” lesson with a 1-2-3 video connect!

4 Feb

If you plan to teach your elementary (or middle school) students how a belt works, consider kicking off the lesson with this 1-2-3 video connect:

  1. (Something fun and familiar) Show a video snippet of a DJ spinning on turntables
  2. (Something informational that uses plain language and supporting visuals) Show the first minute or two of this belt-drive turn table explanation video
  3. (Connect) Either review what has been learned or introduce what will be learned!

It’s as easy as 1-2-3 and can be done in five minutes or less!

Tip: I embed the videos in a Prezi so that they are located in one convenient spot and so I don’t have to worry about distracting comments under the videos that may be inappropriate for younger students.
