How to connect small toy motor to solar panel? Answered

I've a school project to submit and the thing I'm making involves connecting a small toy motor that I salvaged,  to a solar panel from the same toy (pictures attached) . They came attached to gether but I accidentally got them to separate. The wire was joined (?) with panel by a glue and that was the one that got lose. I can't seem to get the circuit to close now. I only tried holding it in place by hand though. Before I use insulation tape, I need to confirm. Is there anything I'm missing? I live in an arid place with hardly any clouds, so sunlight is not a problem.

Did this toy happen to have a battery in it or any other components. I doubt that panel can run the motor on it's own. I can see it charging a small battery or super capacitor and then the motor runs off that.

The wires need to be soldered into place.
