While studying the components of heat, sixth grade students investigated the truth behind Goldilocks and the Three Bears in which Goldilocks chooses Baby Bear's porridge because it was not too hot or too cold. Students conducted their own research by using different types of bowls, thermometers, and porridge to see if they could achieve the same results. After conducting their experiment, they were quite surprised to find that she did in fact fib! Students are now in the process of rewriting the story to include the truth.
