Teacher starts explain the rule of passive This type of sentence or verbs we call it Passive. A- in passive form we use auxiliary verb verb be+past participle(third verb) The frames were drawn perfectly. We use passive when : 1- The subject(doer) is not important. 2- The (doer) is very obvious. 3-The main thing we are talking about is the object of the verb. 4 - We don't know who exactly does or what cause something. B- Verb be can come in past tens ,in present ,and in the future ( will be + past participle) C-We use by t introduce the person who make the action ,and by for tool,instrument or technique. Ss will solve some sheets to start practice Passive. Controlled practice: A- Are the underlined verbs are Passive or Active ? Write P next to the sentence if the underlined verbs are passive ,write A if they are active .. 2 min, in pairs 1- They dont have any special effects. 2- It took five years to make this extremely ambitious film. 3-Here, a pin is being used to move the puppet's eyes. 4- Thousands of frames were drawn by hands. 5-The film cost six times more to make than Disney had planned. 6-Snow white is still loved today by children. 7- Aardman animations' films will be enjoyed in the same way for many years to come.
