Hippo That Lives in a House...

iPad Apps needed

iPad ....
I was very fortunate to attend a workshop this summer using Apple's new iPad in the classroom. As part of the workshop, I got an iPad for my classroom. YEAH!!! I am now looking for apps that we could use in the classroom. Any suggestions? Leave me a comment on apps that you might like to see on the iPad. They can be apps for any subject.

Favorite app of the week: Civilization Revolution
