Is this grammatically correct?:

I strongly agree that children should involve in group activities

I'm not sure if this option is better and more accurate:

I strongly agree that children should be more involved in group activities


I strongly agree that children should involve themselves in group activities


Your first example is incorrect. Examples 2 and 3 are correct.

Involve in the active voice requires a direct object, as in example 3.

The children should involve themselves/friends/teachers in group activities.

Involve can be used intransitively in the passive voice (as a participle that follows the verb to be), as in example 2.

You will find numerous examples and a detailed explanation of such usage at:
