Daedalus and Icarus - Ava Hutchinson

Storyboard Text

  • How will we ever get out of here?
  • "When Minos learned of Theseus' escape, he blamed Daedalus. As punishment, he imprisoned Daedalus and his son, Icarus, in the Labryinth." (149).
  • "How could he and Icarus use the air as a means of escape? He searched the sky to find an answer. Could the seagulls gliding above his head provide a clue?" (149).
  • I have an idea!
  • "If you fly too high, the sun will scorch your feathers and melt their wax. Therefore, but sure to fly halfway between the two. Just follow me." (149).
  • Follow my lead, Icarus.
  • "In his eagerness to reach the sky, he boldly deserted his guid and soared higher and higher...the sun's heat dissolved the wax that bound his feathers together...'Oh, Father! Father! I am finished!' " (150).
  • DAD!
  • OH NO! 
  • "As Deadalus frantically flew about calling his son, he spied Icarus's feathers scattered upon the sea below." (150). 
  • "Daedalus descended to the nearest island to recover and bury Icarus's body and to perform the customary funeral rites. As he grieved, a partridge looked on, chirping joyfully at Daedalus's sorrows. Perdix was avenged." (150).
