Educational and Fun Learning Journey for preschoolers and educators @ Fort Siloso
This learning journey to Fort Siloso at Sentosa enables students to take a step back in time and discover the rich history of Singapore during World War 2. This learning journey consists of a 95 minutes tour and 25 minutes workshop. It will be conducted in a quiz game format with 8 checkpoints to engage the students and get them to be excited about the different parts of the journey.
Students will learn about the inception of Fort Siloso and how it played an important role before and during the Japanese occupation. They will get to know how Fort Siloso is the only remaining defence fort that played a part during the war. As they go through the trail they will be able to see how Singaporeans practised their way of life in the days before and during World War 2.
