TEFL World Wiki’s reply suggests that you want to teach them together – is this the case, or are you talking about teaching them both individually?

Yes! Teach them together. We normally use the past continuous to talk about two events in the past, with one interrupting the other.

If you use two past continuous structures in the same sentence, it means two things are happening at the same time. For example, ‘Mirella was walking along the road while I was speaking to Roger’.
The past continuous can also be used with the past simple in a sentence. The past continuous is something which started before the past simple action…. so the past simple action often interrupts the past continuous action.
For example, ‘I was watching TV when the telephone rang’.
