I noticed that they move with the sun on a opposite angle. It starts big and gets small and then it gets big again.
The sun was appearing in different spots during the day (but the sun doesn't really move on its own) causing the shadow to appear in a different spot.
The longest shadow appeared during the first check I did. It happened because it was the closest to sunrise.
The shortest shadow appeared during the middles check. This is because the sun was directly above us.
The hardest part of the lesson was probably making sure that the shadows were tracked correctly. I had to make sure my clipboard was facing north, have the battery in the right place and things like that.
I learned that shadows start big in the morning and get smaller until noon and then get bigger again. The position of the sun makes a big difference on something's shadow.
