Did This School’s Elf Murder Mystery Assignment Go Too Far?

Students at Flowery Field Primary School in Hyde, England were surprised when they walked into their classroom recently. 4th graders walked into a crime scene for a murdered elf complete with fake blood, body outline on the floor and crime scene tape.

One parent complained that their student was traumatized by the class assignment to help solve the murder of the elf. The school said that this activity was set up to be an engaging writing assignment and had no plans to stop.
