Passive Songs


I'm sharing an activity for B1 students to practice passive voice through songs. In this activity, they have to read active sentences and identify the correct passive version. After they choose, they listen to the audio in order to check.  I hope you find it useful.



Here's the worksheet and the audio.










Once they finish with the songs in the worksheet, they listen to the last 5 segments and do the same process, only this time they provide the passive sentences. The teacher may have to write the active sentence on the board.

Just in case, here you have the lyrics:

1- She takes me away to that special place. (I am taken away to that special place by her).
2- You shook me all night long. (I was shaken all night long by you).
3- You wrote your name right on my back. (Your name was written right on my back by you)
4- See the world in green and blue. (The world is seen in green and blue).
5- It wears her out. (She is worn out by it).

As a follow up I would definitely play jeopardy! You have some examples in my previous post on passive voice.

Can you think of other songs with passive voice?

I await your comments,
Claudio
