Grammar: passive voice

Use the passive voice when the Subject is:

** not important **
The flag is raised every day at dawn. (who raises the flag? it doesn't matter.)

** unknown **
The victim was killed at about 9 pm yesterday. (who killed the victim? we don't know yet.)

** secret **
You broke a vase at your house and your mom comes home.
Mom: WHAT HAPPENED?!
You: The vase was broken... (who broke the vase? you did, but you dont want to tell her!)

Try to make some passive voice sentences:

ex:
I shut the door. ----> The door was shut. (use past participle)

1) You ate the pizza.
2) She threw the ball into the field.
3) The dog ate my homework.

Good luck!
