SECONDARY SCHOOL LEARNERS
Learning Journey for Pre-School Learners!
Google, Siri, Bixby and Alexa! Instagram, Snapchat and TikTok! These are the epitome of technological advancements and globalisation in our economic progression today. However, these advancements have also led to concerning change in our demographics. In a society where everything is rapidly progressing, how do we ensure steady economic progression while combatting the cultural challenges in Singapore?
Aesthetics and Creative Expression
Aesthetics involves the love and pursuit of beauty as found in art and music and movement.
It creates opportunities for the creative expression of emotions and ideas.
Through Learning Journey at MINT Museum of Toys, we have included learning points of art,
music and movement in each of our 4 trails – Outerspace, Characters, Childhood Favourites & Collectables to foster the development of the whole child, including the cognitive, physical, social-emotional and creative domains.
Each trail provides a range of stimuli, ideas and opportunities for children to draw, create, sing with actions and movement or even plays musical instruments. These experiences help promote children’s imagination and creativity.
Learning points about technological advancements, globalisation and changes in demographics are included in this trail.
Learning Through 21st Century Competencies
Around the Museum
In this 21st Century Competencies Trail, the students will be embarking on an exciting and immersive tour inspired by the style of Amazing Race where they will complete a series of tasks ranging from puzzles and role-playing to TikTok challenges in relation to our toys.
Using our Toys, such as Robot Lilliput, ‘S’ Robot and Robot Action Dalek, the students will explore the rising use of Artificial Intelligence in our lives, as well as using Batmobile, Tintin Cessna and Superhero Express to explore the technological advancements in transportation systems. In addition, the students will also investigate the pros and cons of globalisation and changing demographics through Fleissige Kulis (Busy Coolies), Climbing Monkeys, Travelling Boy, Sea View Hotel Chef, Mickey Mouse Fabric Doll and CHIJ Teddy Bear.
At the end of the trail, the students will be given the opportunity to design their own felt teddy bear with costumes inspired by Singapore’s changing culture.
