Kids-Niche Feature: Shooting Stars Preschoolers


Here's this week's glimpse into what's happening in our Kids-Niche Programs! These feature lessons, activities, and saunters from a different classroom each week.

Today's feature: Shooting Stars Pasta Collaboration

Each month, the Shooting Stars collaborate with the Kinnikinnick First-Graders to do a cooking project. In March, we made fresh pasta! It was a fun, multi-step process. First, we collected eggs from the resident chickens here at school. Next, we made the dough using just three simple ingredients- flour, eggs, and olive oil! With the help of our teachers, we rolled out the dough over and over again, eventually turning it into Fettuccine. We embellished our final product with just a little salt, pepper, and olive oil- it was so tasty! 

Learning objectives: 

  • Learn how to make pasta from scratch
  • Explore the textures of flour and dough with our hands
  • Learn about the food chain- we used eggs from our chickens!
  • Learn to use cooking tools, including a pasta maker
  • Practice patience, and learn to feel excited for our peers when it is their turn
