Afternoon shadows (we’ll sort of shadows)

Hi everyone,

Today my class and I were looking at shadows. Shadows are reflections of an object or a person. Today I learnt that shadows are caused by light/sun and an object. In the morning it was very sunny, So I could see the shadows. But in the afternoon it was a tiny bit cloudy that means Theres no shadows.
