This kinesthetic activity is designed to provide upper-division undergraduate students with an embodied understanding of current density and total current.  Students move around the room to act out linear, surface and volume current densities.  The whole class discussion focuses on the meaning of "steady" current, what is "linear" about linear current density, and the idea of current as the flux of current density.
