Clean Air:  Take a big sniff of air, exhale and say “AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!”


Garbage Bag: In a deep voice say, “Hefty!  Hefty!  Hefty!


Give A Hoot:  Divide the audience into two sections.  Have one section yell, “Give A Hoot!” and the                     other section yell, ‘Don’t Pollute!”  Alternate pointing at each section, pointing faster and faster.


Noise Pollution: Raise hands and have everyone yell as loudly as they can.  Lower hands and volume of yells go down.  When hands are on floor, everyone must be extremely quiet.  Do several time – raise and lower volume.  Then, with hands on floor ask the Pack to listen to absolute quiet.


Reduce, Reuse, Recycle:  Divide the audience into three sections.  Have the first section yell, “Reduce!”, the second section yell, “Reuse!”, and the third section yell, “Recycle!”  Alternate pointing at each section, pointing faster and faster.

Banana – Peel banana, eat banana, throw peel over shoulder, rub tummy and say HMMM! GOOD!

Broom – Pretend to take a broom and sweep the floor saying Clean Sweep three times.

Rain Clap – Everyone starts by tapping their right thumbs on the palms of their left hands to represent the first few drops of rain.  Then use two fingers, three fingers, four, five and the palms of hands. Increase volume of clapping from soft to loud.  Then in reverse sequence back to thumbs on palms, as the rain passes.
