Dad Makes Educational Pancakes To Teach His Kids About Their World

Math teacher and awesome dad, Nathan Shields, isn't one to shy away from a teachable moment. Even when it's the family gathered around the kitchen on a summer morning, there's still time for a little biology education. But Nathan has a sweet teaching tool: pancakes.

He and the kids learned about Cephalopods by drawing them with pancakes.

Then they switched over to butterfly species.

They branched out to creating human organs.


Even these animal skulls are a balanced breakfast.

Here are the results of shark week.

The anthropods scuttled their way onto the breakfast plates.

Nothing fishy to see here.


They went back to the basics with protozoa pancakes.

And went farm to table with these vegetable pancake drawings.
