Abstract: This paper explores methods to design and analyze learning environments in which uncertainty is incorporated into students’ activity to support the development of science practices and content understandings. I describe how a second grade landforms investigation was designed to incorporate productive uncertainty about the relationships between phenomenon, empirical investigation, evidence, and explanation. I then describe, apply, and reflect on an analytic method to trace uncertainty through (1) instantiation in the learning environment (2) recognition and introduction into conversation, and (3) conversations in which uncertainty supports participation in science practices.
