I'm looking for simple 3 or 4 chord songs to teach to young students. does anyone have any suggestions?

Green day is pretty simple.

But if you are looking for something other than power chords, then Another round - Foo Fighters (Off of the skin and bones album) is quite simple. Although there is a few more than 4 chords in it.

Knocking on heavens door is one of the most rewarding songs to play. Its just G-D-C and it sounds great. Back in black is also pretty easy. And Most AC/DC in general.
find out what songs your students like. Get them to make a list, and run through it and decide which one is the easiest to play/teach.

Your students may not want to learn songs that we suggest.
