Transcript of Story Map: Daedalus & Icarus

Daedalus was a genius architect and built an incredibly challenging Labyrinth as per King Minos' order.
When presented with the Labyrinth, the King was overjoyed. The Labyrinth was perfectly impossible to navigate.
With the help of the red thread, Theseus escaped the Labyrinth after slaying King Minos' beloved Minotaur.
What seemed like an impossible feat, became conquered when Daedalus advised Princess Ariadne to gift Theseus (who was imprisoned in the labyrinth) a red thread.
Carelessly, Icarus flew closer and closer to the sun; in result, his wings melted.
King Minos approached one of his servants (Daedalus) with the order of building a complicated Labyrinth to contain his Minotaur.
In order to escape the labyrinth, Daedalus created bird-esque wings out of osier branches and wax. Daedalus warned Icarus to stay far below the sun, or his wings would melt.
