Scribble Maps is fun....and educational!

Yet another google feature. This site uses Google Maps and then seems to mix in a version of "Paint" to let you draw on the map. Playing around with it, I noticed you can add flags, pushpins, or different icons to mark locations. Students could make an interactive map of Carlisle, Iowa, any state, or a certain country. Can you imagine how kids could use this to do a report on a state or country with all the shapes, colors, and notes they can make right on this site? And they can print or save their maps as well. Very cool stuff!
