    I'm familiar with "sich melden" for this.

    I heard a teacher today say "Hand/Hände in die Luft"

    Is this also appropriate?

    Ganz und gar nicht! Vielleicht scherzhaft analog zu "Hände hoch!"?

    You could say "Hand/Haende in die Luft" or even "Streckt (den/eure Finger)" but I would say that "Meldet euch" is the best.

    may depend on the situation...
    "sich melden" is the attempt of the pupils to show that they know an answer , rising the attention of the teacher.
    If the teacher was talking to the children, it could also be a kind of gymnastics
    (Remember the old song "Simple Simon says"???)

    Or it could have been the request "Meldet euch! (wenn ihr eine Antwort habt"...

    Maybe I got that wrong that the teacher first said; Who knows...???
    then of course Meldet Euch!

    I was wrong. We do not say "Haende in die Luft" but "Haende in die Hoehe". However "Meldet euch" would be the one I would choose.

    To clarify, the teacher was asking pupils to answer questions/show if they know then answers.

    This was not Simon says, aerobics or a bank robbery (Hände hoch!)
