Complete the Sentence (Passive Voice)

Questions and sentence prompts that can be used with passive voice.

These can be used on a worksheet, however it's better to ask the questions and have the students say their answer. I use this activity as a 'Row Game' at the beginning of a lesson: students have to "buzz in" first and answer quickly and correctly.

Tell students that you will say a sentence, but they have to complete the sentence. The words in bold can be left out for this purpose.
