Teachers often have a hard time trying to find new ways to make their lessons more fun and engaging for their students. Some resort to grouping students and making them demonstrate how they understand the lesson. But, in the case of this teacher who has now gone viral, she wore a bodysuit to show the anatomy of the body!
Verónica Duque wore the wetsuit, which she bought online, for her eight and nine-year-old students. It visually shows exactly where each organ is situated in the body to help her students understand their lesson well.
Speaking to Daily Mail, she said: “I was surfing the internet when an ad of an AliExpress swimsuit popped up. Knowing how hard it is for kids this young to visualize the disposition of internal organs, I thought it was worth it giving it a try.”
AliExpress appears to have sold out of the exact item that Mrs Duque was wearing, although similar swimsuits are still available for around $10.
The 43-year-old teaches natural and social sciences as well as art, English, and Spanish to her third-grade students. She revealed that she also uses disguises and other props to enliven her lessons while she teaches history and grammar.
Mrs Duque’s husband Michael shared the pictures online with the caption: ‘Very proud of this volcano of ideas that I am lucky to have as a woman.
“Today she explained the human body to her students in a very original way. And the kids [were] freaking out.”
Indeed, what Mrs. Duque did is a brilliant and innovative idea at the same time. Surely, her students will remember their anatomy lesson for a very long time!
