The research aims to identify patterns of communication between teacher and students when they construct knowledge. Identification was based on the category of thinking process in the dimension of knowledge of Bloom's Taxonomy. Research was a quasi-experimental pre-post test non-equivalent control group, in which the experiment class was treated with discovery learning, and the control was taught with the conventional method. The control class consisted of 31 students and the experiment class, 28 students. Both classes learned about the reproductive system. The conversations between the teacher and students were analysed based on Bloom's categories. Research results indicate that: 1) teacher and students have a relatively simiar distribution of thinking category; 2) discovery learning changes the distribution of thinking categories of teacher and students; 3) communication between teacher and students in discovery learning is clustered in concepts and facts; and 4) recalling (C1) and understanding (C2) were more dominant during the process of learning.
