How does an electric motor?

I am doing a science project where you take apart an electric motor and describe how it works. I already built an electric motor, however it is different. It is the fan that blows on the big Christmas blow-ups. Any help on how it works specific engine? Thank you!

is an induction motor. Here are some simple ideas. http://www.mamcomotors.com/files/c_frame_product.jpg you'll notice that there is no electricity supplied to the outside frame. is called an "induction motor" because the current in the armature is "induced". http://www.google.com/search?q=how+does+an+induction+motor+work http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_does_a_single_phase_induction_motor_work <== Only a few shots are helpful.
