    took her ice skating

    Doesn't it have to be "took her to an ice skating rink"? Is it an ungrammtical or a common expression?

    ex)When my daughter was three years old, I took her ice skating for the first time, even though I hadn't been on the ice for almost twenty years....

    Re: took her ice skating

    Quite common, and not ungrammatical.

    I took my friend bird-watching

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
