|Abstract:||In a design-based research study, 85 middle school students participated in a model-construction inquiry activity, where they contributed claims about species relationships. The relationships were modeled with a food web visualization that captured the classroom community's understandings. In Year 1, the visualization and knowledge base of claims were independent technologies. In Year 2 the visualization was automatically constructed from the database of claims. We examine the design implications of the visualizations for supporting whole-class discussions.|
