    be assigned to

    Is the following sentence acceptable?

    All the classmates of EGRC were assigned to make a cute puppet figure by using the materials they provided.

    Re: be assigned to

    I don't see a problem with BE ASSIGNED TO, but I would make some changes:

    All the classmates of EGRC were assigned to make a cute puppet figure by using materials they were provided with. (supposing that teachers gave them the material)

    Re: be assigned to

    Does the word 'they' refer to 'materials'?
