Daedalus and Icarus: Greek Myths: Model Text and Comprehension Questions

This lyrical retelling of the Greek myth about the master craftsman Daedalus and his son, Icarus, can be used to test comprehension skills and as a model text for writing activities.

The text is accompanied by 19 reading comprehension questions. These target key comprehension skills such as: retrieving information, sequencing, predicting, making inferences and understanding unfamiliar vocabulary.

A planning sheet is included, so that children can produce their own Greek myth, using the model text for structure.
