Transcript of Icarus and Daedalus

By: Emma Krebs Icarus and Daedalus There once was a famous,
skilled, architect
named Daedalus. The king, King Minos,
wanted him to build something for the Minotaur who would eat people. Daedalus built King Minos a Labyrinth, "whose winding passageways were so cunningly tangled up and twisted that, once inside, you could never find your way out again." This was great for the Minotaur, but
King Minos was a tyrant and locked up
Daedalus and his son, Icarus. Although there were many guards down by
the sea watching them, Daedalus, due to his
skills, figured out a way to escape. Sea gulls would drop feathers, so
Daedalus and Icarus collected as many as
possible. Then, Daedalus stuck the feathers
together using wax. He made wings! They escaped through the sky, flying like birds. Daedalus warned Icarus not to be foolish and fly too close to the sun, or else the sun would melt the wax. He also warned not to fly too low, or the vapors would weigh the feathers down. However, Icarus disobeying his father, flew too close to the sun and his wings melted. He fell to his death, in the ocean. Also, Icarus left his father feeling disappointed that his son is gone. The movie "Finding Nemo" relates to Icarus and Daedalus because both Nemo and Icarus didn't listen to their parents. Nemo, a clown fish, swims too close to a boat. He gets brought to a dentist's office for someone to take him home. Icarus doesn't listen to Daedalus, flying too close to the sun and then drowning. Listen to your elders
