Passive ESL worksheet about the unlucky Olympians. Ss have to come up with passive sentences based on the pictures, and say what happened to each unlucky athlete. It also teaches that there are some verbs (e.g. fall, rip, lose, break, etc.) that stay in the active when they mean that something happened by itself: Eg. "The baseball bat broke. Nobody broke it, the wood was just too weak." As a follow-up, students can draw more unlucky athletes with stick figures.
