Only by using gears. Other wise you need either a stepper motor or a servo.

Or belts and different-sized pulleys, which can also reduce rotation speed (but which are less precise).

rick is correct, wrong motor for the job without a gearbox.
I'll suggest Lego as an easy option, but use a Lego motor.
