Mexican shush

You often need a way of quietening your audience after you’ve set them up with a talking activity. The Mexican shush works whether they’re standing (as shown) or seated.

In the video, you might notice that I get my instructions confused. I tell them to “Fall silent then say shush” when of course it should be the other way around: “Say shush and then fall silent.”

Oops.
