Question Please help me....

I have to compile a test for my upper intermediate teenage class for active and passive sentences. My problem is I need to find some unusual or different strategies. Also it must include when and why we use the passive voice.

My head hurts! Any help gratefully received.

Here are a few test formats. You can adapt the content to whatever forms you've been teaching. The first three test verb form :

1. Multiple choice : My car ..... yesterday a) stolen b) is stolen c) stole d) was stolen e) has been stolen

2. Put the verb in the correct form : My car .... (steal) yesterday

3. Identify and correct the mistake : My car stolen yesterday.

4. Sentence creation - Make a sentence using the words given. Use a passive verb.
a) The room / clean / every evening.
b) When / your car / steal?


To test use (when and why) you could use :

Choose the best alternative to complete the text :
Why should we try and save paper? They make paper from trees / Paper is made from trees which are essential for maintaining the world's atmosphere.

To test form of the verb and use of the by phrase, try Transformation :

Change the following sentences from active to passive. Use a "by" phrase only if it is necessary and it sounds natural :

1. They make paper in Finland.
2. Tolkien wrote "Lord of the Rings".
3. A dog bit me yesterday.
3. They make paper in Finland.


Hope that helps.
