Passive sentences / Active sentence.
How do you turn a passive sentences into an active sentence.
In a passive voice sentence, the subject is being acted on.
Example: John was hit with the ball. 'John' is the subject, but receives the action. Note that there is a form of the verb 'to be' used with 'hit.
In an active voice sentence, the subject performs the action.
Example: The ball hit John.

Typically you change passive into active by rewriting your sentence, using the end in the beginning. As in the example:
John was hit with the ball. Passive
Take the back of the sentence and move it to the front:
The ball hit John. Active.
