  5. 5. POST-VIEWING ACTIVITY 1 Here’s an excerpt from the video script. Read it and underline the sentences containing passive voice structures. Here we have the 1817 Draisienne, the first bicycle that was ridden on two wheels. Primarily this machine is made of wood. It was almost 50 years later before the word bicycle was put in the dictionary. But the boneshaker was the first boom machine with pedals and that patent was first issued in 1866. The bigger the wheel, the faster you would go and the more efficient the machine was. Oh, I haven’t gotten on this a long time. ACTIVITY 2 Your teacher is going to give you some slips containing active voice sentences. Work in pairs to come up with the correspondent passive voice sentence.
