As a part of their indigenous games unit, AR's PE class was introduced to an adapted version of the Afghan national sport of Buzkashi (adapted because it was deemed impractical, among other factors, to use an actual goat carcass in class)! Alejandra and Emily researched the game and taught the rules to their class before commencing two spirited rounds of Buzkashi that warmed everyone up on this shivery morning! #academyoftheredwoods #nativeyoutholympics #fortunauhsd #powerofplace #buzkashi

What's going on here? Mr. Stephens uses PB&J instructions to demonstrate the importance of clear directions in order to achieve repeatability in experiments. Not only has he opened the peanut butter jar by stabbing the lid with a knife, he will go on to spread the jelly with his hands. What a mess!
