This Collection was put together for Ana, a 4th grade student at Explorer Elementary School in Kentwood Michigan as part of a research project on innovation. Ana was looking to the GRPM to gather information and materials for the essential question: How have innovations changed transportation over time? Analyzing these items from the GRPM Collections helped Ana with research and project development. Ana was looking to find what innovations have had the greatest impact on transportation over time. Ana was particularly interested in the horse and buggy, so that's what we focused this Collection on. The GRPM staff also directed Ana to explore the A is for Auto Virtual Discovery Kit and the Virtual Exhibit Tour of The Streets of Old Grand Rapids to learn more about the time period that horse and buggies were used.
