An elementary school in England is under fire after students participated in an 'elf murder mystery' activity that some parents say was a tad too realistic. According to a local newspaper, the strange 'game' took place earlier this week at the Flowery Field Primary School in the town of Hyde. It was there that a fourth grade classroom had been transformed overnight into a virtual crime scene depicting the aftermath of a rather gruesome elf slaying.
Cordoned off with police tape, the classroom contained the outline of a murdered elf's body on the floor along with fake blood smeared on some desks and the words 'I hate Christmas' scrawled on the window. The students were encouraged to collect the clues and decipher who had killed the iconic holiday character as part of a writing project. As one can imagine, some of their parents were not exactly thrilled with the school's unorthodox exercise.
