Schoolteacher rocks anatomy chart bodysuit to make learning fun Valladolid

A Spanish schoolteacher pushed the boundaries when she took a biology class wearing a bodysuit with human internal organs printed over it, reported the New York Post Veronica Duque has a teaching experience spanning over 15 years and presently instructs 3rd graders in various subjects such as science, English, art, social studies, and Spanish.

The 43-year-old stumbled upon this strange-looking piece of wardrobe through an advertisement that appeared suddenly while she was surfing the internet.

At that moment she was struck with the idea to use this swimsuit to make biology fun and easy to learn for her pupils "Knowing how hard it is for kids this young to visualize the disposition of internal organs, I thought it was worth giving it a try", she told a website.

Veronica's husband accompanied his wife to the class and clicked a few pictures of her donning the anatomy chart outfit and posted it on twitter.

The photos of the quirkily innovative school teacher attracted a barrage of appreciative comments and over 13,000 retweets and 65,300 likes.

"Very proud of this volcano of ideas that I am lucky to have as my wife. "Today she explained the human body to her students in a very original way, and the kids were freaking out great Veronica !!!" wrote Mike Moratinos as the caption of the tweet.

Though there were some funny comments by users who were of the opinion that the suit won't fit appropriately on a lot of people, including themselves.

"She has a body for that suit," @uganuba_marina tweeted in Spanish. "If I wear it, the intestines come out in the chest"

It's not the first time Duque has resorted to such out of the box ways of teaching.

She has previously taken up disguises for history lessons and used cardbo ard crowns to denote grammatical concepts such as nouns, adjectives, and verbs.

She hopes her approach will bring about a change in the common perception towards teachers who are usually considered boring and lazy by society.
