Harlem was an important area during the Colonial Period. Many of our founding fathers had connections to Harlem either by war, education or residence. Our Harlem Colonial Period Lesson Plans will introduce students to George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, Aaron Burr, Grant’s Tomb, The Battle of Harlem Heights and the Grange. The lessons are available for elementary school, middle school and high school students. We also have a supplemental lesson available to help reinforce what the student has learned. The lesson consists of ten vocabulary words, ten fun facts on the topic and a word search puzzle.
