Countable and Uncountable Nouns Game

This game is about countable and uncountable nouns and is more effective whilst playing with someone else.

First of all, 
We don’t say
3 salt
2 wood        NO!
5 oats
These are uncountable nouns

We would say
5 cups
4 shirts      YES!
6 eggs
These are countable nouns

So write a list of nouns about 20, cut them out from the paper as individual words.
Then write some numbers and also some words like many, much, some, a few, cut these out as individual words as well.

Face these upside down on a table and you and your friend can see how many matches you can make take turns in turning them over and if they match, you have a pair 

3 / hats = a pair
Some /sugar is also a pair
Many/ sugar is not a pair 

You will need to have many words such as ‘ Some ‘ as this is the most common word to describe uncountable nouns.

Enjoy the game!
