Lesson Plan Text

Countable and Uncountable- Pick & Draw

Instructions for teachers
Cut up one set of cards per class, or one set per group of two to four students if you want 
to do the game in groups. The game can be played with or without the question cards. 

Ask the students to spread the cards out face up across the table. Students take turns 
making sentences that they want to draw (
“There is a little foam on the spaghetti”, etc) or 
making questions that they want their partner to answer and then draw (
“How many 
bananas are there under the table?”, etc). The cards at the end of the worksheets are 
designed to be the things that students draw the things on, in and under, but let students 
mix them up with the other cards (drawing ovens in a mouth rather than mouths in an 
oven, etc) if they like.

To extend the game, you can ask students to make extra cards to include in the game, ask
them to write sentences that they want to be drawn, or just let them say other sentences 
that they want to be drawn.

After the game, ask students to describe the pictures with similar language, making sure 
that they use countable and uncountable nouns in the right way. 

As more controlled practice, before or after the drawing games you could ask students to 
put the nouns in columns depending on whether they take 
“-s” or not. They can also test 
each other on the same language.
