Sports

Time to learn about from athletes from Harlem like John Carlos, Moe Berg, Althea Gibson, The Harlem Globetrotters, Sugar Ray Robinson, Frank Hussey, Joe Louis, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Charlie Pilkington, and the New York Renaissance (‘Rens’). We celebrate some of the greatest athletes from Harlem in our Famous Athletes from Harlem Lesson Plans. 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.
