plant cells

Dear Folks,
I'm teaching a non-majors plant biology course this semester, and I'm
starting a section on cells.  I'm trying to include as much real
observation of things as I can, but am constrained by the fact that there
is no lab, and the class meets in an auditorium.  
Here's what I'd like to do, and I send this out to you all in hopes that
someone knows how to achieve it.  I'd like to pass around a leaf or chunk
of tissue that has cells of enough size to be seen with a 5X hand lens.
I'm only shooting for them being able to see the outlines of the cells, but
not anything within.  Any candidates?
