Abstract: This study investigates how a Grade 5 science community co-constructed collective structures of inquiry in the form of “research cycles” to support sustained inquiry in a whole school year. Qualitative analysis of field notes, classroom videos and student notebooks documented the evolution of research cycles. Analysis of student interviews showed how this structure was used and adapted by individual student to position and monitor knowledge progress and plan for further inquiry. Content analyses of student online discourse in Knowledge Forum indicated that students made more purposeful contributions aligning with the research cycle after formation.
