Teachers in Western Australia has been provided with the kit, Salinity in the Classroom: A Resource for Western Australian Schools. We report on the views of teachers' experiences with this kit: a written survey of 63 teachers and interviews with nine teachers. Three themes emerged from the teacher responses: content, pedagogy and distribution of resources. We also reflect on ways that the science education community can contribute to improving such curriculum materials.
