We describe a pedagogical approach supporting the acqui- sition of abstraction skills by apprentices in logistics. Ap- prentices start with a concrete representation in the form of a small-scale model which aims at engaging them in learn- ing activities. Multiple External Representations are used to progressively introduce more abstract representations dis- played on paper-based forms called TinkerSheets. We present the implementation of this approach on the TinkerTable, a tabletop learning environment which is used in two profes- sional schools by four different teachers. We report observa- tions of the use of the environment at different stages of the curriculum with first- and second-year apprentices.
