Students ‘freak out’ after teacher wears ‘naked’ bodysuit to teach them anatomy
A Spanish teacher's unique way of helping her students understand anatomy has gone viral for her cheeky 'naked' bodysuit.
Verónica Duque, 43, teaches both natural and social sciences, as well as art, English and Spanish.
She's been in the profession for 15 years, and prides herself on her ability to find creative methods to teach her third-grade students such as using costumes.
While teaching human anatomy recently, she realised the seven and eight-year-olds were struggling to understand where each organ was located inside the body.
Luckily she happened to stumble upon an AliExpress swimsuit online that proved the perfect teaching aid: a skintight bodysuit illustrated with muscles, arteries and vital organs.
The suit features lungs, a liver, kidneys and a small and large intestine – from the back as well as the front.

"Knowing how hard it is for kids this young to visualise the disposition of internal organs, I thought it was worth it giving it a try," Ms Duque told Lithuanian website BoredPanda.
"I decided long ago to use disguises for history lessons," she said. "I'm also using cardboard crowns for my students to learn grammatical categories such as nouns, adjectives, and verbs. Different grammar kingdoms, so to say."
Her students were thrilled – as was her husband Michael, who posted photos of his wife's outfit on Twitter .
"Very proud of this volcano of ideas that I am lucky to have as a woman," he wrote in Spanish.
"Today she explained the human body to her students in a very original way, and the kids were freaking out."

She said she hopes her innovation will help others understand how much work goes into being a teacher.
"I'd like society to stop considering teachers to be lazy bureaucratic public servants. We're certainly not."
