Main Question or Discussion Point

so my class is going to build motors tomorrow, and we will have about an hour to build a simple motor, and we are supposed to find instructions for building a motor. Can someone give me instructions for building a simple motor, probably with wire, batteries and magnets, and other materials should be simple ones i should have.

i need simple instructions for a simple motor. i found this one,

but if you think it is good, or have simpler or better ones please say so.

well the first one doesn't work for me. i forgot to say, but it can't be a homopolar motor or whatever it means so i can't just do the first one. i already found the first and second but, second needs supplies and first seems to be a little more complicated than the beakmens one

you can use fine sandpaper. Just make sure the wire is stiff enough to support the winding.
