BRIEF OUTLINE: A cat chases mice around a gameboard while practicing forming noun plural sentences.



  • CatAndMouse attachment: The second page of the worksheet has a picture of a cat and mouse. You will need to copy/paste as many cats and mice as you need.
  • Dice: Enough for each group



  1. After splitting the class into groups, have the students play Janken and the loser is the 'cat', everyone else are mice. The cat starts on the cheese, while the mice start on the Start square.
  2. Play starts by everyone, except the 'cat', rolling the dice and the highest number starts. The first student rolls the dice and moves. The square they land on, they form a sentence using the following pattern: "I have three apples."
  3. NOTE 1: The 'cat' doesn't ever roll the dice. The 'cat' automatically receives two movements on its turn.
  4. NOTE 2: All mice can only move horizontal or vertical, whereas the cat can move diagonal as well.
  5. If the cat catches a mouse, the mouse goes back to the start line. If a mouse reaches the cheese, they become the cat.



  • If the cat is moving too fast, only allow the cat to move one space.
