Then, we used the computer to map where the children lived in relation to ASFG and in relation to the rest of the world, and finally, the students used the SMART board to draw realistic houses.

“Once upon a time, my dad and me were in a helicopter looking at the whole world. We saw our tower where my dad lived with me. I went to his office, to where he works. I did a little of his job.
