3rd Grade Homework (S,T, & W) Due March 12th

In the novel Chasing Vermeer, Ms. Hussey asks her class, “What makes an object a piece of art?”. Calder and Petra’s homework assignment is to choose an object at home that feels like a work of art and then describe it without saying what the object is. Imagine you are in Ms. Hussey’s class and complete the assignment. You may refer to pages 36, 46, and 54 of the novel for descriptions and examples.
