Animal Farm Chapter 6

Activities

1. Why was the windmill difficult to build?


The main material used to construct the windmill was stones, since the
windmill was to be built on the top of a hill, animals will have to drag a
preponderant amount of rocks to the top. In addition, the stones were originally
huge boulders that needed to be broken for transportation, since the tools that
allow them to do so were meant for humans, it became difficult for the entire
process.

2. How is farm life different for the animals in this chapter? Is it better or
worse?
The condition of the farm worsened as more and more labour were put onto the
animals while their rations were severely cut. The time for leisure and
recreation diminished as the animals worked.
3. What happens to animals who do not do the voluntary work?
The ones who didnt attend the voluntary work had their rations cut in half
although it was a voluntary work day.
Which of the 7 commandments does Napoleon contradict (go against)? How?
So far, Napoleon has broken the seventh commandment: All animals are
equal. He gets to enjoy his leisure life with lots of food in a proper house while
the other animals have limited rations, have a heavy burden to carry and lives
in their original animal pastures.

4. Who said this?

From now onwards Animal Farm would engage
in trade with the neighbouring farms: not, of
course, for any commercial purpose but simply in
order to obtain certain materials which were
urgently necessary.
You have heard, then, comrades, he said, that
we pigs now sleep in the beds of the farmhouse?
And why not? You did not suppose, surely, that
there was ever a ruling against beds? A bed
merely
means a place to sleep in. A pile of straw in a
stall is a bed, properly regarded. The rule was
against
sheets, which are a human invention. We have
removed the sheets from the farmhouse beds,
and sleep
between blankets. And very comfortable beds
they are too! But not more comfortable than we
need, I
can tell you, comrades, with all the brainwork we
have to do nowadays. You would not rob us of our
repose, would you, comrades? You would not
have us too tired to carry out our duties? Surely
none
of you wishes to see Jones back?

No more delays, comrades! cried Napoleon


when the footprints had been examined. There is
work to be done. This very morning we begin
rebuilding the windmill, and we will build all
through
the winter, rain or shine. We will teach this
miserable traitor that he cannot undo our work so
easily.
Remember, comrades, there must be no
alteration in our plans: they shall be carried out
to the day.
Forward, comrades! Long live the windmill! Long
live Animal Farm!
