You can go to the "80,000 people stadium" (Shanghai Stadium) and take day tour from there. They have tour to many other places nearby Shanghai, mostly 1-3 days type.
Other than thoes stated, can visit Yuyuan Garden, Go to People's Sq and walk along Nanjing Road and see The Bund, Xintiandi, many temples etc.

in my mind: (order by high priority)
人民广场 (city hall is also there, lots of things to view)
南京路（very near to 人民广场，walking distance)
城隍庙 a collection of market,temple and park, lots of food, but crowd must queue for buying.
if you have time, then
no matter how many time you have
never go to 浦东，just stay at 外滩 shoot or watch 浦东
