The 5.1-magniture quake jolted the Qalehtal district, some 600 kilometers (370 miles) southwest of the capital, Tehran, at around 8:50 a.m. (05:20 GMT).
State radio said the children were injured in a stampede when they rushed out of their classrooms in a local school in Qalehtal. It also said some buildings in the district were slightly damaged.
The report said the quake was felt in many cities and towns across the southwestern oil-rich province of Khuzestan. It said no deaths or damage were immediately reported.
