"Fly as high as the sun!"
-Flight of Icarus by Iron Maiden

This simple lesson guide brought to you by Wake Up Sunshine brings to life the mythological story of Icarus. While we're often encouraged to strive for our hopes and dreams, or to reach for the stars . . . how many have truly thought about what they'd do if those dreams or stars came to fruition? In the story of Daedalus and Icarus, the reader is educated as to what happens when one reaches just a bit too far.

This simple, innovative, and affordable unit allows children to be engaged in a variety of activities, which will improve their reading, writing, comprehension, critical thinking, and language skills.
