A biology teacher has given her seventh grade students a lesson to remember.
Under her layers, the teacher first revealed a suit showing the body’s muscular structure and internal organs, before stripping down again into a suit showing the body’s skeletal system.
Speaking about her students, Heerkens told CNN, “At first they were a little bit in shock because they thought ‘the teacher is taking off her clothes,’ until they saw what was underneath.”
According to Dutch news site Omroep West, Heerkens got the idea for her creative lesson when she saw someone wearing leggings with a similar design. The teacher then found a pair online and brought it to class after running the idea past the school’s director.
