Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Remove Handle
Remove the handle from the tea pot and straighten out the curve. Leave the bends at each end. Three quarters of the way down from the hinged end mark your first cut also mark off the curved edges and where you will drill your hole at the end of the long piece. Now make your cuts.
Bend the hinged ends of the long pieces to a right angle . Do the same to the small pieces now add a wood cross piece at the top of the long pieces connecting them
Step 3: Finishing Up
Screw the switch on to a wooden base. the smaller peices are screwed down to either side of the left bar so that the contact is tight. when your ready to add wiring just attach the wires to the screws.
