3 - Whiteboard Challenges

Whiteboard Challenges

Challenge 1

Rewrite the first sentence using the active voice so that the agent of the action (the deep-sea predator) is at the beginning of the sentence.

Challenge 2

Rewrite the second sentence using the passive voice so that the receiver of the action (the squid) appears at the beginning of the sentence.

Challenge 3

Using some of the words from the Word Wall, write your own scintillating sentence about the anglerfish and the squid, using the active voice. Once you have done this, rewrite it so that it is in the passive voice.
