 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I'm very new to Arduino and I got this http://www.freeimagehosting.net/mdo6v in my starter kit.

Can someone please tell me what it is and what I would use it for?

Thanks

It is a "Prototyping Shield"
Support circuits (LEDs, temp sensors, etc.) are placed on it, makes for easier interfacing.
