Explore the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears with your students using this animated fairy tale video perfect for younger learners.

How Does the Story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears End?

The three bears have had a lovely morning walking in the woods. Father Bear caught a fish, Mother Bear sketched some sunflowers in the field and Baby Bear sat and looked through his favourite book under the oak tree.

But what do they discover as they return to their cottage? Not only is the door wide open, but the chairs at the kitchen table have been shattered into pieces!

What will the bears do now?

Introducing Teach Starter’s animated rendition of Goldilocks and the Three Bears! The video presents this much-loved story through moving pictures accompanied by a modern-day, age-appropriate narration. This version uses the classic tale for inspiration but presents it using a more contemporary lens.

It’s important to note that this video does not contain the ending to the Three Bears story! This has been done purposefully to allow your students to further develop their reading comprehension skills by making predictions about how the story might end, based on what has happened in the story so far.

(Spoiler: The video stops just as the Three Bears return to their home to find that someone has been inside their house.)

Literature Activity Ideas for Goldilocks and the Three Bears

If you’re introducing literary elements such as plot, characters and setting to your students, then this video makes a perfect addition to your resource repertoire! Here are a few suggestions from our teacher team as to how you might use this Goldilocks and the Three Bears video to teach these key narrative components to your students:

  1. Setting Description – Have your students use the depiction of the setting from the video to write their own descriptive paragraph about this. Encourage the use of adjectives, adverbs and figurative language.
  2. Point of View Switch – What was Goldilocks doing while the bears were out walking in the woods? Have the students write the beginning of the story from Goldilocks’ perspective, up until the point where the kitchen chairs are broken.
  3. Multiple Endings – As a class, brainstorm as many endings to the story as possible. These do not need to be in line with the traditional ending… the more creative, the better!
