Poisonous darts in Class 6!

We found out that some rainforest tribespeople use poisonous darts for hunting.  They use poison from dart frogs!  We made darts and blowpipes using cotton buds and straws, and started to investigate.

We are planning a science investigation using the darts and blowpipes.  Here are some questions we could investigate. 

How far can we make a dart travel?

Does the dart go further if the blowpipe is shorter?

If the dart is smaller will it travel further?

Does the strength of the blow affect the distance the dart travels?

Can you think of any other questions?
