Read the Greek myth, Daedalus and Icarus, based on the Minoan civilization of Crete and then answer the questions.

Sample Question:

5 “The boy continued to soar up into the bright blue sky, edging nearer and nearer to the sun and, as Daedalus flew along below him, he saw a bright white feather flutter through the sky and, looking up, watched in horror as more and more feathers detached themselves from his son’s wings.” What can you infer after reading this excerpt?
a the boy is removing his wings
b the sun is melting the wax that held the wings together
c Daedalus was higher and closer to the sun than Icarus
d the feathers were too heavy to fly

This is used with Ancient Greece, however, for sure one can use it i ELA to teach theme, central idea, close read, and fiction.
