Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • Yes sir, we will do the job for you.
  • Daedalus, I would like for you and your son to build me a palace with a maze.
  • Rising Action
  • Thank you for your hard work, now that the maze and palace is done, I can put my minotaur in my maze.
  • Oh no!
  • Rising Action
  • I want to leave!
  • You are not aloud to leave , you are the only two who know how to escape the maze, that secret must never leave Crete
  • The ruler on an island named Crete was king Minos, he told Daedalus and Daedalus's son, Icarus, that he had a job for them. The two came to Crete to do the job. They had to build a tall palace with a maze in the bottom.
  • Climax
  • Icarus, don't fly too close to the sun!
  • Daedalus and Icarus did not know what the purpose of the maze was, but they built it anyway. When the maze and palace were done, King Minos told them what the maze was for. The purpose of the maze was to keep a creature called a minotaur, a half man and half beast.
  • Falling Action
  • I can fly higher than the sun!
  • When they heard the news, Daedalus and Icarus wanted to leave immediately. But, King Minos would not allow them to leave. They had to stay there for the rest of their lives, but Daedalus had an idea to escape
  • Resolution
  • The plan worked, Daedalus and Icarus escaped by flying. They attached their wings with wax and flew out the window. Daedalus warned his son about not flying to close to the sun.
  • Look dad, I'm flying!
  • Icarus believed that he could fly higher than the sun. He kept flying higher and higher. The wax started to melt and eventually a wing fell off. The wax kept melting and the other one fell too.
  • Icarus fell from the sky. Daedalus was terribly sad. The two wings were left in the sea.
