Students then sort the bold nouns in the questions based on whether they are countable or uncountable. Next, students complete grammar usage rules for using 'How much' and 'How many' by circling the correct words. Students then go on to complete question pairs with 'How much...?' or 'How many...?'. Afterwards, students use pictures and 'How much' or 'How many' to complete questions.

In this quantifiers error correction activity, students identify and correct errors in sentences that contain quantifiers. First, students read sentences on the worksheet, some of which contain errors in the use of quantifiers. If students think a sentence is right, they put a tick. If they think a sentence is wrong, they put a cross and correct the mistake. Next, students bet on their answers, depending on how confident they are about their decisions. Students bet between 10 and 100 points for each item. When the students have placed a bet for each sentence, elicit the correct answers from the class. If students guessed correctly, they win the amount they bet. If they guessed incorrectly, they lose that amount. The student with the highest grand total at the end is the winner.

The second student repeats the first student’s sentence and adds a suitable shopping item preceded by 'a little', e.g. 'I went to the supermarket and bought a few oranges and a little chocolate'. The third student repeats the sentence, adding 'a few' and a shopping item, and so on. This continues around the circle.

If the team manages to make a sentence, the other team helps to judge if it's correct or not. If the sentence is correct, the team writes a nought or cross in the square accordingly. Then, it's the other team's turn to play. The first team to get a row of three noughts or crosses wins the round and scores a point. Play several rounds using different quantifiers each time. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins.

In this engaging quantifiers game, students race to write down countable and uncountable nouns that belong to different quantifiers and categories. The worksheet contains five columns with quantifiers as headings (a few, a little, some, a large number of, a large amount of). The students' task is to complete each row with nouns that fit a certain category. Read the first category to the class, i.e. something you can see in the classroom. Students then have one minute to complete the first row on their worksheet with nouns that fit that category, one for each quantifier heading. After one minute, students take it in turns to give their answers by making a sentence with the quantifiers, e.g. 'I can see a few bags, a large number of students, a little dust on the table', etc. Students score one point for every grammatically correct and appropriate noun. Two points are awarded for every original noun - a noun that no one else has written. This process continues until all the categories have been used. The student with the most points at the end of the game is the winner.
