Active and passive voice in verbs can confuse students, but using voice correctly matters in student writing. Connect grammar to writing and clarify the differences in active and passive voice. With an editable presentation and numerous practice opportunities, this active and passive voice unit will complete your grammar lessons.
I made this for middle school and ninth graders. I also use these activities when I review for standardized testing.
This grammar unit includes:
✩ A pretest. Assess where students' understanding before you begin lessons.
✩ A grammar Powerpoint with 30 slides. They cover definitions, examples, and practice sentences for students. Students will also learn how to change passive voice to active voice. Finally, several slides cover when it is acceptable to use passive voice. This presentation is editable.
✩ A note taking sheet for students. They can complete the form as they watch the Powerpoint.
✩ Scaffolded active and passive voice worksheets.
☆ 60 sentences on task cards for students to identify active or passive voice. Student answer sheets provided.
☆ 60 sentences in a grammar sort. Students will sort sentences written in active and passive voice. Student answer sheet provided.
☆ Answer key included for all practice sentences.
Students must understand active and passive voice. I created these activities and scaffolded worksheets so that I could reach every student while making grammar meaningful.
