Product Description
Students are familiar with rail guns because they appear in video games and movies, but what makes them work? I use this activity to help the students learn about electromagnetism. I use two videos on youtube to introduce the topic; while the students are watching the video, they are filling out a video worksheet. After the video is finished, we discuss how rail guns relate to electromagnetism. Finally, I have the students read a 2 page article and fill out another worksheet. I recommend using Google forms for the worksheets, but if you prefer to do it with paper I have a document of the questions attached as well.

This activity is perfect for a day when you want the students to do independent work or need a quick sub plan.
