Scribble Maps is a site which uses Google Maps – you can zoom in or zoom out on the maps, change to different views – eg terrain or satellite, and put markers and text at various locations. However it is different in that it allows you to add shapes to the maps as well.

Use world maps in English to plot the journeys of characters in books or in History to show war zones, or zoom right in for Geography and add details or instructions to local maps. Once you begin to use it, you’ll discover all kinds of possibilities for using this site in the classroom.

You can even get a Scribble Maps widget from Widgetbox to add to your website, blog or Facebook site.
