Justice for Goldilocks

After studying the judicial system in their classrooms, fifth-grade students at Sylvan Avenue Elementary School recently connected fairy tales to a real-life courtroom scenario during their production of “The Goldilocks Trial.”

Prior to the scheduled performances, the gymnasium was transformed into a mock courtroom, and parents were welcomed to attend as their children took on important roles in order to come to a verdict regarding Goldilocks herself.

The participating students garnished valuable information pertaining to how a courtroom operates, along with its key components, as they took part in the defense, prosecution and jury. Additionally, they enhanced their public speaking skills as they presented their testimonies to all in attendance.

Some of the fairy-tale characters on hand to testify included the Blind Mice, the Gingerbread Boy, and, of course, the Big Bad Wolf.

The district would like to thank Glen Vogel, P.E., Esq. for his help in teaching students about the judicial system and for coordinating these wonderful performances throughout the day.
