This 29-slide PowerPoint lesson on Motors and Generators begins by looking at everyday uses of motors as well as the Motor Principle, the Right-Hand Rule of motors, AC and DC motors and their applications. It then goes into Generators, Electricity Generation and Transformers.

The student version of the PowerPoint contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
