            $table->id();
            $table->string('name');
            $table->string('email');
            $table->text('body');
            $table->timestamps();
        });
    }

    /**
     * Reverse the migrations.
     */
    public function down(): void
    {
        Schema::dropIfExists('contacts');
    }
};

Open model file Contact.php and write this code into it.
