    Fun, educational lessons and 3D Island regeneration game

3D Game and interactive lessons for years 5-13

Financial Literacy Education – A Life Skill for all New Zealanders.

Anybody interested in being smarter with their money will enjoy Bamzonia. Bamzonia aims to make Financial Literacy relevant, interesting, and engaging.

The programme consists of three elements:

  1. Lessons and multi-choice Quizzes
  2. 3D Island regeneration Game
  3. Reporting results and Leaderboard

Currently, we have 35 lessons available for years 5 – 13. 

(Click here to Download the lessons spreadsheet)

All 35 Lessons are aligned to the NZ curriculum Levels 1 – 8 and NZQA Personal Financial Management Unit Standards, Levels 1 – 3

Lessons are designed for specific areas of the curriculum but teachers and students will find many other lessons helpful for background knowledge, unfamiliar text, and subject matter.

Every lesson is followed by a quiz. With sufficient correct answers, students are awarded Zonian dollars to play the 3D Island regeneration game – where they rebuild the economy to create the health, wealth, and happiness, of their own Bamzonia Island community. The Bamzonia lessons cover subjects including personal and family budgeting, investments, personal financial goals, credit, debt, income, tax, bank products and services, personal financial documents, KiwiSaver – and much more.
