Why are solids not included in the ICE table?

I believe it is because the molar concentration of a pure substance, such as a liquid or solid, does not change in a reaction! So, since it doesn't change, it wouldn't affect the ICE table!

Pure solids and liquids are considered to have an activity level of 1, which roughly equates to them having no effect on equilibrium concentrations
