  • Climax

  • Remember son, dont fly too high.
  • Daedalus soon finished the labyrinth. But then, he discovered the true reason for the maze,..to house a man-eating half man, half bull called a minotaur! As Daedalus knew this, he wanted to leave crete.
  • Falling Action
  • Ha, i can fly higher than these nasty pests, in fact i can fly higher than the sun!
  • Daedalus asked King Minos to leave crete and he said no, for it"s a secret to know the exit of the maze. So he asked each and every bird to spare a feather so he made wings for himself and his son with the feathers and some wax. And he flew away.
  • Exposition
  • Finally, Daedalus and Icarus were flying away to there freedom. There was only one rule that was given to Icarus by his father, "Do not fly too high."
  • Daedalus and Icarus suddenly attacked by crows being decked at, so Icarus said he could fly higher than them, higher than the sun even. his father kept on reminding him, "Don't fly too high.", but Icarus could not hear him.
  • Dont get too close!
  • Icarus flew so high that the sun melted the wax right off his back and the wings fell off. Daedalus knew he fell so he went to go over to him and he did not see his body for he knew that Icarus had drowned.
  • HELP!
