Wind a coil with insulated wire. Suspend a magnet inside or very near the coil on a flexible diaphram. Connect the coil to a small amp and speaker. Speak to the diaphram. Think speaker in reverse.

If you don't care about quality you could simply use headphones and plug them in to your mic input.

Use a speaker AS a microphone.
