4 News Wall presents the latest news condensed into animated GIFs. Each thumbnail also includes an animated title. Click the image to open and read the news story. Scroll through the site to view previous stories or click a date to highlight that day's news. The site was created in the UK, so some of the pronunciations and spellings may differ from those in American English.

In the Classroom

Use the 4 News Wall as a quick and catchy way to capture student interest in world news. Although this is a UK site, news stories are from around the world and offer a variety of interesting topics for any classroom. Have students choose an article, then research how that information was presented by the US media or in other countries. Use this site as an example, and have students create animated GIFs as part of any multimedia project. Use the GIF Maker, reviewed here, to create and share images.
