This is very helpful since I want to try this activity. Could you tell me what type of wire I need and where to purchase it? (RadioShack, hardware store etc.)

Appear calm. Use silence. Silence is effective for class management, wait time for gathering your own thoughts, and allowing students to gather theirs. If you appear to be calm, people will see a confident woman who is an excellent listener. No matter what is happening around you, there is power in staying calm.
