must be extremely quiet. Do several times – 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.
Reverse Applause: Move hands away from each other.
Plant: Crouch near floor, take deep breath, hands together, like saying
prayer with eyes closed, slowly rise upward spreading fingers and as you are
on tip-toes, look up (to sun,) open eyes and exhale "Ahhhh."

four fingers of one hand up the other arm and then scream ‘EEEEEKK!”
