Here is an engaging countable and uncountable nouns guessing game to help students practice using countable and uncountable food and drink nouns with quantifiers.

The students look at their partner's answers in the box and guess which one completes each statement. Students write their guesses in the second column. Afterwards, students ask questions to their partner to find out if their guesses are right or wrong, e.g. 'Do you think drinking some coco before bed helps you to fall asleep?' Students put a tick if their guess is right. If their guess is wrong, they put a cross and write the correct answer in the gap. The student with the most correct guesses in each pair wins.
