In this Spanish Difficult Review quiz you will begin to cover some nursery rhymes as they are told in Spanish. And, this rhyme is probably one of the oldest known nursery rhymes. The first known reference to the rhyme of The Cat and the Fiddle dates back to 1569, although no author is ever given. It was changed slightly when it was printed in 1765 in the Mother Goose’s Melody when the word craft was changed to sport. This was probably done because of the frenzy in the world over witchcraft.
This rhyme is also sometimes known as Hey Diddle Diddle. Back when it first began, the name 'Cat and the Fiddle' was a common name of many inns.
Because this rhyme is only six lines long, some of the quiz problems will be either questions or statements about the rhyme and its history to which you will need to find the correct answer.
Remember that this is also a writing quiz so please have some paper and a pen or pencil on hand. Part of the challenge of this quiz is to write down each of the quiz’s Spanish phrases, sentences and/or questions and then see if you can write out the English translation. Next see if your translation can be found among one of the four given answers. Then choose the correct answer.
