Transcript of Daedalus and Icarus Plot Diagram (SB Activity 1.20)

"Daedalus and Icarus" Plot Diagram
(SpringBoard Activity 1.20)

WHO: Daedalus, Icarus & King Minos of Crete
WHERE: Island of Crete (near Greece)
WHEN: When gods and mortals lived together

CONFLICT: Daedalus, an architect, was hired
to build a maze by King Minos. He is then imprisoned by the king and wants to escape
off the island with his son.
Daedalus thought of a plan; he would make wings so he and his son, Icarus, could fly away, so he made two pair of wings from wax and bird feathers.
Daedalus taught he and his son to fly.
Daedalus warned his son. He told him to not fly too close to the sun or the wings would melt.
When it was time for them to take off, Daedalus went ahead of Icarus.
Icarus was excited by the feeling of flight, so he opened his wings and soared upward towards the sun.
Soon Icarus's wings began to melt and he started falling down towards the vast sea.
Daedalus noticed his son was nowhere to be found so he went
back in search.
Below him he saw the feathers of his son's wings floating in the water. He knew Icarus had drowned.
Falling Action
An island nearby was named Icaria, in memory of Icarus.
Daedalus went to the temple of Apollo in Sicily and hung up his wings as an offering.
Daedalus never flew again.
