Passive voice in short stories of two remarkable people

Share with others:

The other day I watched a well-done documentary about extraordinary inventions developed by remarkable people. I was amazed by the inventors’ determination and all the sacrifices they had made to make their dreams come true. However, the most exciting is that many of the inventions we take for granted today were developed accidentally. It made me think that it could be a great topic at school, especially to teach and practise past passive voice.

Here it is, a set of two short stories of two remarkable scientists and inventors.
