This study analyses the processs by which children from poor rural communities acquire knowledge and abilities involved in their communities' activity systems. These systems are the interactive contexts in which children's language and cognitive development take place. The data consists of interaction situations between children and adults while families were carrying out productive activities in tolla communities from Jujuy and Salta and rural communities from Córdoba, Argentina. Complementary data were obtained by interviews of children and adults. The data were analysed with a qualitative procedure, the Comparative Constant Method (Glasser y Strauss, 1967; Strauss y Corbin, 1991). Results show the different ways in which children became involved in the activity systems: exploring systems' resources and objects through play; practicing abilities related to the activity and participating in specific actions in the context of the activity.
