Fifth-graders at Tackan Elementary School put Goldilocks on trial for her criminal acts in a court case with more than a dozen witnesses on Nov. 9.

Goldilocks was accused of trespassing at the Three Bears’ home, eating Papa Bear’s porridge and leftover chicken, stealing money (petty larceny), trying on Mama Bear’s dresses and breaking Baby Bear’s rocking chair (criminal mischief). Goldilocks went on trial against the plaintiffs, the Three Bears. 

As Goldilocks’ lawyers and the prosecution went toe to toe trying to prove their respective clients’ cases, other fairy tale characters were called to testify as witnesses including the Big Bad Wolf, Little Red Riding Hood, the Gingerbread Man, the Three Blind Mice, Chicken Little and more. 

After hearing all the facts in the case, the jury of fourth-graders handed down a verdict and sentencing for Goldilocks.
