Sally's class is studying life-cycles of chicks. Each student gets an egg to keep warm, only Sally's is a bit different from all the others. And once they hatch, Sally's chick looks a bit different from all the others. In fact, Sally's chick has a hard time fitting in, literally. He's giant, green, and covered in scales instead of feathers. Argus helps us remember that sometimes it's what makes us different that others love.
