Here are some examples of how to use the past participle in English:

Ex. – I had bought a cake at the store.

I had gone out in the woods to snowshoe.

He had thrown the baseball 90 miles per hour!

She had slept for 10 hours and felt better.

The dog had stolen the newspapers.

The little boy had become angry and pulled his sister’s hair.

He had gotten a cut on his hand when he tried to slice the lemon.

Important note:  There is a mistake on the list on the link.  You have to use “gotten” as the past participle of “get.”
