This video from the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), aimed at primary teachers, demonstrates an experiment which may be used when learning about solids.

A demonstrator uses biscuits to show children that some solids are made of tiny pieces and can be poured. Using a biscuit and crushing it into tiny pieces helps children see that, even though a solid is broken up, it is still a solid. It also shows that some solids may be poured and will fit into different shaped containers.
