Visually Explore Current Events 100 Images at a Time

In another post earlier today I shared a couple of ways for students to find current events stories by browsing maps. Another way to try to get students interested in news stories is to have them browse through images connected to stories. Ten by Ten is one of my favorite sites for that purpose.

Ten by Ten presents visitors with a grid of 100 images linked to current events stories. Every hour the top 100 news stories from around the world are linked to images on a ten by ten grid. The stories are ranked according to traffic to the articles. Clicking on an image will provide you with more information including links to more articles about the story. (You must allow pop-ups for the article links to work).
