Students at a Netherlands school were stunned when their teacher stripped down in front of them to try a creative approach to teach a lesson about the human body.
Dutch woman, Debby Heerkens, a gym and biology teacher at Groene Hart Rijnwoude school, in the small town of Hazerswoude Dorp, Netherlands, gave her students an anatomy lesson they won’t forget. When she stood in front of the class and started to remove her clothing, they weren’t sure what to expect.
She stripped down to reveal a full suit that mapped out the human body in sharp and graphic detail. Heerkens had on several layers, one that showed the skeletal bone structure and another that featured the internal organs
Heerkens talked to CNN about her students. She said: “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,”
The point was to help students visualize the complex anatomy of the human body, while also highlighting its essential organs.
After teaching for seven years, Heerkens felt a need to be more creative with some of her lesson plans to keep her students engaged.
