Welcome to the Zoomanji Lesson Resource Pack.
5 children, 5 stories, 1 game. The question is… what will it take to escape?
When Betty, Claire, Charlotte, Mikey and Emily are put into a breakout room during their online class, they never imagined what would happen next! What seems to be a normal link turns out to be so much more. With one click, they are zapped into the mysterious world of Zoomanji where they meet the Mighty Nosnibor. A set of challenges must be completed in order for the children to escape and return back to their class… however there is more than meets the eye. What the children don’t know is that, in order to complete their challenges, they must overcome their greatest difficulties and use their strengths for good. But will this be enough for them to break free?
