Abstract: This study explores cross-community interaction in two Grade 5/6 knowledge building communities. The two classrooms studied human body systems with the support of Knowledge Forum over a 10-week period. As the students conducted focused inquiry and discourse within their own community, they reviewed productive threads of ideas and posted syntheses in a cross-community space, as synthetic boundary objects. A set of idea thread syntheses from previous classrooms studying human body systems was also posted in the cross-community space. Qualitative analyses of classroom videos, online discourse, and interviews provide a rich description of how the students conceived, generated, and interacted around the synthetic boundary objects for knowledge building across communities.
