My daughter's teacher is having them do a science report on "Does plants move?" They are not asking about any special type of plant. If you could help with this question, it would be alot of help. Or lead me in the right direction.

Plants do not get up and walk, but off the top of my head, their seeds may hitch rides on animals or the wind. They may spread by sending out wandering stems or roots. Pieces of stem or root might wash downstream. If you think about it there are so many ways plants can "move"!
