Give students practice changing passive voice to active voice with this eighth-grade grammar and writing worksheet! A sentence uses passive voice when the subject receives the verb’s action. A sentence uses active voice when the subject performs the verb. In formal writing, it is generally best to use active voice, as an active voice conveys a stronger, clearer tone, while passive voice is more subtle. This worksheet is a great way to help learners distinguish between the two as they practice rewriting sentences to use active voice.
