Having problems understanding concepts in Integrated Humanities?
Well, in this blog, we have information on some spatial concepts in Geography such as location, distance and direction, together with simple spatial associations and spacial change over time.
We also have content covering river hydrology and formation.
For the history aspect in Integrated Humanities, we analyzed the historical change and continuity in ancient Asian civilisation, by tracing the historical and cultural roots of 3 specific artifacts.

Places that we have, and for YOU to visit:
Singapore River, from Coleman Bridge to Anderson Bridge
Asian Civilisations Museum

Singapore River

In the early beginnings, the land around the Singapore River was home to a small fishing village, temasek, later renamed Singapura by Sang Nila Utama. In 1819, Sir Stamford Raffles arrived and
transformed the then 'Singapura' into a majestic trading port, Singapore.

Our Route:
From Coleman Bridge
Along the Singapore River

Asian Civilisation Museum

We started off at the Asian Civilisation Museum by taking a quick look around the many galleries there. Out of all the galleries there, we found the Champa gallery the most interesting, thus, we decided to find out more.
After taking some photos and gaining information, we went to the Vietnam gallery, and the thing that we remembered the most was the part on where they showed how they made pottery which were similar to Chinese pottery.

Our Voice

This whole journey has been a fun and interesting experience, with some ups and downs. We learnt a lot through this, and went away more knowledgeable and aware.
We hope that you would be able to have the same experience for yourselves and encourage you to visit the Singapore River and Asian Civilisation Museum during your free time.
