Bridging the gap

 There is a 3 year age gap between my boys.  My youngest (5yo) has always kinda paid attention to my oldest (8yo) ds's lessons.  I'd like to combine their Social Studies/History and Science lessons but I'm not sure how since I've been using a curriculum with my oldest and my youngest doesn't have the prior knowledge.

I'm about to finish a chemistry unit with my oldest so this would be the perfect time to start dual lessons.  How do you impart the prior knowledge needed without boring the older child?  I considered having my oldest "teach" my youngest to review/catch up, but my youngest didn't like that very much when I tried it with math.
