Adverse Yaw, shown by slowing aircraft down to 70kts and getting student to look at aircraft nose on a ref point then move control column to the right (works best to the right)

Note it is most noticeable if you roll to the Left for the student if they are sitting in the left seat.

Then show student what happens if we use rudder when we turn.
