When discussing different types of greenhouse structures, I have my students build a small model of each type (A-frame, uneven span, even span, connected) using spaghetti and marshmallows.  Its cheap, not too messy and yummy!  I would open the marshmallow bag early to allow them to harden up a bit, fresh marshmallows will tend to allow the structure to sag.  I allow about 15-20 minutes for this activity.
