Abstract: This paper explores elementary students’ mechanistic reasoning about states of matter during a series of collective embodied modeling activities. Recognizing students’ mechanistic reasoning in a collective embodied space can be challenging since students’ reasoning is often deeply - yet implicitly - embedded in their interactions. In this paper, we use Russ et al.’s (2008) mechanistic reasoning framework as a guide to identify moments of mechanistic salience for students and draw upon the learning in embodied activity framework (Danish et al., 2020) to map the mediators within the environment that contribute to the production of such mechanistically rich moments.
