Spanish Medium Review Quiz - Vocabulary - Down on the Farm! (Questions)

This Spanish Medium Review quiz will take a look at things that you might find on a farm. Have you ever visited a farm? Maybe you grew up on one. Farming life can be very hard and yet extremely rewarding at the same time. If you grew up on a farm you probably started to learn how to milk cows by the time you were 5 years old. You might even have had the chore of collecting eggs from the chickens and cleaning the chicken house. The chores on a farm are never done because all of the animals need constant attention and when it’s planting time – that takes a lot of effort as well. All the same, farming is a chosen way of life for many so it would be nice to know some of the animals, buildings and tools that farmers work with.
