Abstract: Learning to make scientific observations can be challenging for learners and has sometimes been viewed as unproblematic in instruction. Using the theoretical framework of Knowledge-in-Pieces we examine the structures of learners' localized knowledge systems as they observed rock outcroppings. We document that along an observation-based geology learning trajectory, learners activate localized knowledge systems that exhibit varying levels of coherence and fragmentation, and quantity and relevance of the perceptual information.
