  1. First of all, use these as models:
    Passive = The baseball was hit by John.
    Active = John hit the baseball.

    See the difference? They are saying the same thing, but with different word order and passive verbs.

    I'll do the first two for you:
    Henry is being eaten by the crocodile.
    Henry has been eaten by the crocodile.

    Now you try the rest, and then I'll check them over for you.

  2. Make Henry the subject of the sentence. You do the first couple and repost, then I will make corrections if needed.
