I am trying to figure out how to teach young students, say 3rd/4th grade the six steps of the scientific method in a simplified way they would understand...Any ideas?? Any examples/and /or sites??

I have to tell you, at that grade, they will memorize the steps, but have little understanding. I would focus on observation, and data collection, and focusing on part of the hypothesis: the why and possible explainations for the observations. Later on, they can learn the meaning of hypothesis.
