Abstract: We present a study for first grade students engaging in Science through Technology Enhanced Play (STEP) – a mixed reality embodied learning environment which tracks student movements as they act as honeybees collecting nectar. We attend to how students take up first and third-person perspectives as they work to communicate the location of flowers to their peers through the design of a “waggle dance” and collaboratively make sense of agent behavior in complex systems through embodied modeling. We discuss patterns in students’ perspective-taking and its intersection with iterative modeling practices and report on how facilitating these shifts allows students to be positioned as the designers and subjects of their own models while fostering the synthesis of abstract and concrete ideas.
