Question Help: Grammar - Passie Voice

Currently teaching children (age 13-15) in a Japanese Junior High School, and doing passive voice this week and next week.

I have made worksheets for my kids, they know how to change sentences into passive voice now (at least I hope so).

Eg. "A great pilot flew the plane."
-> "The plane was flown by a great pilot."

However, I need some help on planning a game for this grammar point. I have thought about it for a while but couldn't get my head to function.

Will really appreciate it if someone could give me a few ideas or similiar games they have done before.

Cheers.

In the junior highs I like to play Bombs Away which is just battleship. This is really just for practice and fluency. I assume they have already learned the grammar behind it.

There is a passive sheet all ready to go. If you hear a lot of laughter, you know that they understand what they are saying.

For introduction I use my cards Susan53 linked to above.
