My class loved this activity. Over a week we read four Goldilocks style stories. We compared each one to the previous stories with venn diagrams. At the end of the week after discussing the story elements that make a Goldilocks story (the mother sends off the girl, she goes into someone else's house without permission, she tastes their porridge, sits in their chairs, tests their beds, says "too____" for the father's items, "too_____" for the mother's items, and "just right" for the baby's items, she is found, she learns a lesson, and sometimes apologizes), we wrote our own versions!
Bio Poems for each Goldilocks would be a fun addition to this activity as well.
