Shade is protection from the sun.
I’m hot. Let’s find some shade to sit in.
The temperature is 30 degrees in the shade.

We use shadow when we are thinking of the “picture” made by an unlighted area.
In the evening your shadow is longer than you are.
There’s an old story about a man without a shadow.
