Here are six activity centers focusing on learning about cells that could be adapted for several grade levels. Some require microscopes, some require research, but they all ask for diagrams to show what is being learned. Look at both plant and animal cells. Find out how they are similar and how they are different. The instructions for each center are very detailed and complete, so it will be easy to set them up.
