Icarus and Daedalus

Today we are going to compare different versions of the same myth. Read this version of the myth again or listen to me reading it to you from Monday's English lesson. What do you notice about them?

Comparing different versions of the same story

Here is Daedalus’s Diary entry when he thinks that Icarus is lost at sea.

  •  Read the diary entry  

But wait – Icarus is safe! He was picked up from the sea by a fishing boat and taken home to Athens.
On the lined paper, write Icarus’s diary entry, explaining what happened from his point of view and how he feels about having not listened to his father’s advice.
What does Icarus decide he will do the next morning?

 

  •  Now write Icarus’s diary entry, detailing what happened to him and saying how much he regrets not listening to his Dad.
