Expression: "Pass it down."


If a teacher gives some pages to the students in the front row and asks them to “Pass them down”, would it make sense? Or “Pass them behind.”?



I would say: Pass them along/around/round.


Thanks Alan

…[color=red]and what about “Pass it behind.” if a teacher wants every row of the students to pass those papers behind (them/ it?) only?


PS: I am not comfortable with the above RED sentence–do you find any mistakes here? Please let me know.

Hi Tom

I wouldn’t say “Pass them behind”. I think I’d probably tell the students to “take a copy and pass the rest to the back” or “…pass the rest to the person behind you”.
