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:
- (Something fun and familiar) Show a video snippet of a DJ spinning on turntables
- (Something informational that uses plain language and supporting visuals) Show the first minute or two of this belt-drive turn table explanation video
- (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.
(If you are interested in seeing this 5 minute lesson as a video, feel free to contact me.)
