Teacher's information

 

Who is behind this site?

DairyNZ is an industry body funded by dairy farmers. Our purpose is to help make dairy farming successful. While most of our work is research based and focused behind the farm gate, we have initiatives targeted at groups outside of dairying. We do this to help raise the general understanding of dairy farming, how it is connected to New Zealanders, what part it plays in our economy, and to promote it as an interesting and varied vocational choice.

What is Rosie’s World?

Rosie’s World is a safe, fun site designed to entertain kids and help them learn about dairying. On the site kids can play cool games, watch videos, read Rosie’s blog, learn about Rosie - the dairy industry’s cowbassador, and more.

How does Rosie’s World tie in with Rosie’s Education?

Rosie’s World has some content that some of the Rosie’s Education teaching resources reference. It also provides activities and games for kids such as the Sequencing Game, papercraft activities and the Rosie Code, that teachers can use to help in their teaching.   

What is the purpose of our educational programme?

We want to help ensure that New Zealand primary school children get the opportunity to learn about dairying. We do this by creating curriculum related resources which are designed to help teachers create fun and interesting lessons that provide effective learning. Our resources have a dairy context, so children get to find out about our largest export industry while they are learning science, maths, problem solving and a range of other topics.
