I'm a beginner at making videos and editing them. I'm making a 6-minute video and I added 4 gifs. I got the gifs from google. When I add the gif's their scale is small, I don't know why. And when I make the scale bigger to fit the screen it works, but when I export the video all the gifs are a bit blurry. Why is that?

What size is your video, and what size are the gif files?
If your video is high definition (such as 1280x1080) and your picture is smaller... that is your problem

I checked the sequence settings, then the video frame size. It's 1920x1080. And the four gifs vary in size of 500x271, 400x225, 500x269, 476x252. So how do I make the gifs high definition?
Generally speaking, you can't increase the resolution of your source media (your gifs). The size they are now is the max size they will be. You can scale them up to fit, but they won't have any more detail than they already have. You would need to find higher resolution gifs.
this is one of the gifs. It has a very good resolution but it's blurry when I scale it to fit the video. Can I do nothing so it wouldn't be blurry?
There's two things going on here from my perspective:
1) This gif is 500x271. That's not a high resolution. That's about 1/4 the size of the frame size you are trying to add it to. Basically, it's going to look 4x worse when you blow it up.
2) A gif is already heavily compressed. Most of the data has been stripped away so that you have a super tiny file to share. When you add that into a video and then run it through a compression algorithm, there's not a lot of data left to work with there. And since you're probably compressing it to a video codec that's Long-GOP/interframe (it's saving data across frames rather than every frame like a series of pictures or an intraframe codec, that's not going to help it any either. Unless you really increase the bitrate, the subtle gradients and things that exist in the picture are going to get lumped together into blocks of like color and luma values.
