HSTRY - Timelines for English language learners
There have been many different types of timeslines come out in these past few years and I have tried many of them. They all have different features that make one better, easier or more practical than the next. I just came across this one which also seems to have some unique features that your students may find attractive.
The tool HSTRY allows you to add images, videos, audios to bring your timeline to life. Students are also able to add comments to the timeline which creates interaction and feedback for the author of the timeline. They can add quizzes too!
I haven't tried it with students but it does look like it could be a fun tool to use and it could certainly be useful for EFL students when it comes to making oral presentations in English. I am adding the link to HSTRY's webpage. If you try it, I would love to hear how it went and see some examples!

This cool tool by Class Tools is great for creating personalized headlines related to real or fictive news. Students can use their imaginations to create dynamic titles, headlines and summaries of their news stories. The tool allows you to create an almost instant downloadable image which could be printed out to decorate the classroom. It also allows you to share the url or tweet your headline instantly!
