Angry Birds Teaching Physics

Picture this, Buddy Jr. is sitting in his classroom playing Angry Birds on his iPhone (or Android device) instead of doing the Homework for the class he should be doing. Most of the time this ends in a failure in the class but not if this class is physics!

In recent real life developments teachers have been beginning to use Angry Birds as a tool to teach children physics in "real life" situations. The birds have mass and are projected on a set course with a certain velocity. Then with gravity and Newtons laws taken into account the bird lands in the position you want. See the possibilities now? Check This site for more info on the topic. Let me know what you think. Should Angry birds be used as a tool to teach children or should it be left alone as a fun game to play to pass time?
