Skitch is an App that can be downloaded onto devices or computers. The App has some really nice features including but not limited to adding text to photos, maps, and illustrations created right on the App.

The lesson below is a recording of a third grade class that I was working with on making predictions on a map using the Skitch App on iPads. We were involved in a project where a mini boat with a GPS locater was to be dropped in the ocean off the coast of Brazil. The boat did not quite make it to Brazil and set sail off the coast of the Carolinas. The students predicted where the boat will travel and they are now tracking the live results at http://www.nefsc.noaa.gov/drifter/drift_ep_2012_2.html
